Love of the North vintage floral embroidery workshop 21st January 2020
Make 2020 your year of creativity!
Come and learn basic embroidery techniques in the For the Love of the North vintage floral embroidery workshop with Clare from Hello! Hooray! on Tuesday 21st January 2020 at 6:30pm.
What will I learn?
In this 2-hour workshop, Clare will teach you everything you need to know to stitch a beautiful vintage floral bouquet. The design is based on authentic vintage patterns, and is a perfect introduction to hand embroidery. It uses a variety of basic hand sewing stitches: straight stitch, back stitch, lazy daisy, French knots and satin stitch – so you don’t need to know hundreds of stitches to be able to create something beautiful!
Clare will introduce you to the basic materials required, and you will use a mixture of standard embroidery thread and perle thread. You will also learn how to transfer the design onto fabric using an air erasable pen.
What else do I get?
All materials will be provided in this workshop:
- 15cm (6”) hand painted beech wood embroidery hoop
- Linen fabric
- Air erasable pen
- Pattern and full instructions (with step-by-step photos)
You will also be able to borrow additional tools (e.g. scissors) during the workshop. A variety of colourful hoops will be available for you to choose from on the day.
