Join us here at the studio in Dumfries for a day filled with sewing, embroidery and applique learning how to make a set of three Russian Dolls. Based on a original design by Leah they will make a very special gift for someone special to be treasured for years to come.
Come along to this full day workshop and Leah will teach you step by step how to make your very own fabric Russian Dolls. You'll learn hand embroidery techniques to create delicate hand stitched faces, and ways to personalise the design to include names and initials, both machine and applique techniques to create hair and ways to decorate the dolls. Use fabrics from our stash and lots of ribbons and trims.
There's alot to achieve at this workshop so you might not get your russian dolls completely finished but Leah will ensure you know all the techniques and skills necessary so you can hand finish each of your dolls at home.
Material included. Vintage and new fabrics, felt, vintage linens, sewing machine thread, handkerchiefs, embroidery threads, hollow fibre filling, vintage buttons, ribbons, ric rac and yarn. Tools of the trade are also provided including use of a sewing machine.
Classes are small to ensure you get the personal tuition you need to help with your project and get the best out of each workshop we host.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be lots of hand stitching involved in the class but we will of course guide you through each technique.
Tea & refreshments are also provided throughout the day, feel free to bring a packed lunch too!
