Join me for a special and rather popular embroidery day workshop to create your own hand stitched illustrations ...

We will start this workshop by embroidering directly in to a hand printed template that I will provide you with at the start of the workshop. I will have four different templates for you to choose from on the day, I will also encourage you to work in a free style way incorporating hand stitched text and illustration

We will then go on to work in to this design using applique and patchwork techniques using fabric scraps that I will also provide you with at the start of the class

My own hand stitched illustrations vary I enjoy creating scenes and stories inspired by everyday events perhaps a bunny surrounded by trees in blossom...Some more simple and some have more of a decorative border...I will also demonstrate how I incorporate found items in to my narrative based work. For example adding watch faces, vintage buttons and other found ephemera

This Workshop includes a kit but

* Your favorite sewing tools, threads and any favorite fabric scraps that you may like to include in to your illustration
