About the Event
This day long creative embroidery workshop wil give you the opportunity opportunity to learn, experiment and have a good old creative play. At the end of the day you will have created a series of experimental embroideries and mini projects and explored many different ways to expand and enhance your embroidery practice.
My studio is packed to the rafters with everything a crafter could want; beads, sequins, buttons, fabrics galore, needles, ribbons, transfers, iron on vinyl, a rainbow of threads and yarns, scissors, heat presses and stencils, all available for you to use. If the weather is nice we can stitch in the sunshine in my secluded garden.
The workshops are suitable for adventurous beginners and more experienced stitchers, you will be able to work at your own pace and I will always be on hand to help. It's the perfect day to try your hand at a little bit of every wonderful thing embroidery has to offer! As the seasons change the workshops will reflect the celebrations and holidays approaching.
In the morning I will teach you some of my favourite stitches and help you design an abstract sampler using iron on vinyl and different textured wools and flosses. After lunch you will learn more techniques to embelish your work with beads, sequins and other 3D items and I will show you how to make sequin flowers and beaded bugs. If there is anything you have particularly wanted to know how to make or do from the Sewyeah creativerse then now is the time to come and learn!
At the end of the day you will come away with a brain buzzing with ideas and a bag of goodies to keep you stitching!
I felt so inspired by all of Christine's beautiful work and it was fab to hear her insights and have full access to her stash! I wish I could do it every day! Emily
