Stitched hand lettering embroidery workshop
If you are looking to stitch a name hoop with a modern twist, then this embroidery workshop is for you!
I’m really excited to be offering my stitched hand lettering embroidery workshop as a new in-person workshop! Stitch in my beautiful studio, with a small group of other stitchers, and we’ll enjoy taking some time out to be creative. This project is ideal if you want to stitch a hoop with a name in it, or a word that means something to you. A bespoke pattern will be created for you to use to create your hoop (see below).
What will I learn?
In this 2-hour stitched hand lettering embroidery workshop, I will teach you how to stitch a basic satin stitch and back stitch required for this project. You will then learn how to use these stitches to create the lettering – this can be a name agreed in advance of the lesson (up to 8 characters will fit in this hoop – contact me before ordering if you need a bigger size!), and the personalised templates will be provided for you to transfer the design. I will also show you how to finish the back of your hoop so that it is ready to display. You don’t need any prior experience, and all levels welcome!
What is included in the workshop?
All materials will be provided on the day:
- 15cm (6”) hand painted beech wood embroidery hoop (in colour of your choice – see additional photos for colour options)
- Cotton fabric (please note that designs will vary, but you will be able to select beforehand – see additional photos for a small sample)
- An aqua trick marker and water brush pen
- Full skein of DMC thread
- Customised pattern for your hoop
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.
This listing is for one place on the workshop.
Workshops are currently limited to 6 participants. 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. Please take a lateral flow test before attending. 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.
I will contact you prior to the workshop to confirm your fabric and hoop colour choices. Please make sure that you provide the correct email address at checkout.
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.
