Enjoy a therapeutic few hours at class as you learn to hand embroider some more advanced stitches. You'll also start to stitch a choice of designs inspired by Leah's original illustrations and collection of vintage embroidery linens. It's a relaxing way to end the day and allows time to get to sit, stitch and chatter around the table with other like minded people.
Having already attended our Beginners Hand Embroidery workshop
you'll be keen to add more embroidery stitches to your repertoire. During the class Leah will teach you a variety of stitches including fishbone, leaf stitch, outline stitch, couching, blanket stitch, bullion, padded satin stitch etc She will also give you hints and tips of stitching text. You will practice these different stitches which you can add to a sampler to use for future reference and learn how you can apply some of these stitches to either the floral wreath or rose design. You'll also use different threads and yarn to explore different textures and styles they achieve.
Leah will show you how to create a colour palette and using the stitches you've learnt you will begin to stitch your chosen design. During class you'll start to create a unique piece featuring your chosen positive affirmation or quote. Both designs fits perfectly within a 10" hoop but could also be transformed into a panel for a cushion, added to a quilt or framed as a picture on your wall. You'll leave with the beginnings of a beautiful embroidered item to continue at home.
Material included. Fabric, thread, yarn, fabric transfer pen and embroidery hoop.
Basic tools of the trade are also provided so all you have to do is show up!
You'll also receive a digitally printed fabric panel, 10 inch hoop, embroidery template with your positive affirmation or quote, some of your chosen thread colours to get you started and suggested stitches to use on the floral design.
