Our new workshops for 2023 are updated weekly
Thurs, 18th Jan, 2024
AT 6– 8 PM
When you think about the year ahead or the year that’s been – it’s often hard to ‘remember’ everything that you did. You obviously remember milestones or certain events – but have you ever thought about doing an embroidery journal showcasing your year?
As often as you like –daily, or an item or 2 a week, embroider an image, a word or a certain motif that reminders you of an ‘event’ or even a mundane moment of your day. Each item or motif is about the size of a smartie. Each month is given the same amount of space and at the end of the year you will have a visual representation of what you have done to admire, and to hang on a wall or in a special space
What is provided: All materials, including threads, linen, embroidery hoop, pattern and a range of inspirations for your motifs. A journal to record some thoughts and a stitching guide that gives you access to a range of stitch types and styles. Tuition on various stitches is also provided
Workshop length: 2 hours
NEW DATE COMING soon
Join Sally to weave a melon basket (so called because it looks like a melon segment). The basket will be made using cane as the frame and Denim recycled from jeans for the body of the basket.
Let’s use some of the tonnes of waste fabric that would otherwise end in landfill.
All materials will be supplied, all skill levels accommodated. The workshop cost includes tuition plus all weaving materials including a good choice of recycled fibres. Light refreshments will be provided.
Workshop length: 2.5 hours
