Event Details

Create this beautiful flower design and enjoy an introduction to Peruvian Andean embroidery, exploring the art and rich heritage of hand stitching in the Andes. This class is a window through which you will have an indigenous insight into the art of Peruvian textiles, their design, formation and coloration.

Bella Lane is from Iquitos Peru, Master Peruvian embroiderer, trained at the Royal School of Needlework and a world embroidery stitch collector.  We are very honoured to have Bella as a guest teacher at Fabrications!

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

– Understand how to work technically this beautiful design step by step

– Explore a range of hand embroidery stitches and how to work the thread neatly

– Have the opportunity to study some indigenous costumes of Peru

– Participants can apply the same technique to your own projects

– Students will have picked up some ‘insider’ tips and tricks from a master craft person

 

The class includes a special embroidery kit pre prepared by Bella using authentic Peruvian embroidery threads and everything you need for the class and to be able to continue embroidering at home.

LEVEL: All levels are welcome

Class Size: Bella wants to keep the class size to 6 participants at this time, so we have needed to increase the price slightly to cover her time and the kits.

Price: £65 or £120 (Full Day – 2 sessions)

HOW TO BOOK: Contact us directly on 020 7275 8043 or BOOK ONLINE
