Rope rainbows embroidery workshop
Book your place on an in-person workshop today!
The rope rainbows embroidery workshop is now available to pre-book! I’m really excited to be opening up my studio in September 2021. Come and stitch a beautiful rope rainbow hoop in your choice of colour, as we spend a couple of hours together in person and enjoying some creative time.
What will I learn in the rope rainbows embroidery workshop?
In this 2-hour embroidery workshop I will talk you through each step to create a wonderful rope rainbow hoop. I’ll show you how to prepare the fabric and the rope, how to wrap the thread and attach the sections to the fabric. You’ll also learn how to stitch a simple back stitch to add some text underneath, as an air erasable pen is included for you to take home. You could write a name, a phrase or words that mean a lot to you! The great thing is that the pen can be used again and again for future projects. If you don’t finish during the session that’s absolutely fine – you can just work at your own pace and take it home to finish.
What’s included in the workshop?
All materials will be provided on the day:
- 15cm (6”) hand painted beech wood embroidery hoop (in a colour to match the fabric)
- Linen fabric
- Cotton rope
- Air erasable pen
- Thread (standard DMC thread and perle thread)
- Needles and pins
- Pattern and full instructions (with step-by-step photos) for you to refer to after the lesson
You will be able to borrow a pair of scissors on the day (one pair per person, and cleaned before use) but you can bring your own if you prefer. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided too – please let me know if you have any specific dietary requirements.
A variety of colours are available – please see additional photos for options. I will contact you a couple of weeks before the workshop to confirm your choice.
This listing is for one place on the workshop.
Workshops are currently limited to 6 participants, in line with current Covid regulations. The front window will be open during the workshop, and surfaces will be cleaned before and after. There is space around the table to be socially distanced whilst stitching, and the sofa area can be used as well so that we can spread out. You are welcome to wear a mask during the workshop. If you have any questions or concerns, or would rather book a small group workshop for a bubble, please get in touch.
Workshops will take place at Hello! Hooray! Studio, 16 Tyne View, Lemington, Newcastle upon Tyne NE15 8RA. Please select your chosen date and time and then add to cart. For more information about my studio, click here.
Workshop places can be cancelled or rearranged up to 7 days prior to the arranged date and time. We regret that cancellations made after 7 days prior to the lesson cannot be rearranged or refunded, as outlined in the Terms and Conditions. Please read these carefully before purchase.

Please note that I am currently posting twice a week on MONDAYS and THURSDAYS, in order to limit trips to the Post Office during the pandemic. Thanks so much for understanding, and stay safe!
