The first time I ran this Embroidery Workshop is was only 3 hours long and those few hours went in a flash. As soon as we got really into everything and relaxed our time was up. So I have decided to extend the class and make it 5 hours (10am to 4pm with an hour break for lunch around 1pm).

This is an Embroidery workshop with a little difference. One of the things I love about Embroidery is that you can use pretty much anything. In my final pieces on my Fine Art degree I stitched handmade paper into an embroidery.

I look at many throw away items and wonder about their potential for all sorts of creative things. Like many creative people I have a collection of interesting bits n bobs like packaging with a nice texture, a shiny wrapper or a lovely (but annoying) bit of ribbon from inside your clothes. I decided to incorporate some of these into an embroidery along with lots of different embroidery stitches. This example includes sweet wrappers and off cuts of ribbon as well as beads and embroidery thread. This is a great little workshop to learn a few embroidery stitches and to (re)use some more unusual items. It’s also a fun way to spend a few hours experimenting and relaxing.

You are welcome to bring along any interesting fibres, papers, wrappers and materials you’d like to incorporate into your designs. We will also have plenty of thread, beads, sequins, fabric and various materials to play with too.

Some of the beads used in this workshop are quite small. So if you usually use a magnifier or glasses for close work, please bring those along with you.

Drinks are provided, but lunch isn’t, however there are loads of great cafes and shop near by to buy lunch. You’re more than welcome to bring along a packed lunch to eat in the workshop room.

All materials are provided for the workshop as well as refreshments. You will receive a 10% off voucher to use in store or online to stock up on supplies after the workshop (valid for 1 month). As well as a 50% discount on all teas and coffees in our café (valid for 1 week).
