CANCELLED Tyneside Cinema vintage floral embroidery workshop 4th April 2020
This popular workshop comes to a new location!
Come and learn some basic hand embroidery stitches with Clare from Hello! Hooray! at the Tyneside Cinema vintage floral embroidery workshop on Saturday 4th April 2020, from 10-12.
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 in a 15cm (6″) hoop. 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.
When is the workshop?
This workshop will take place on Saturday 4th April 2020, in the Headspace room at the Tyneside Cinema, 10 Pilgrim Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 6QG from 10am. Tea and coffee will be provided, and we will have a lovely morning stitching and chatting!
