Upcycle a garment using a folk embroidery design (or your own!)

11th August 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm


On completion of the class participants will confidently be able to:

– Understand how to transfer a design onto clothing or cloth

– Explore a range of hand embroidery stitches including: Running Stitch, Back Stitch, Whipped Back Stitch, Laced Back Stitch, Split Stitch, Chain Stitch, Blanket Stitch, Lazy Daisy, Satin Stitch, French Knot, Bullion Stitch, Satin Stitch, Long & Short Stitch

– Design your own or use existing designs for hand embroidery

– Feel inspired to apply the same technique to your own projects

– Pick up some ‘insider’ tips, tricks and approaches from a practising artist.

YOU WILL NEED: Bring along an item of clothing to embellish. As a first project we recommend something made of medium weight, stable cloth and not too stretchy eg cotton / linen tops, shirts, sweatshirt.
