Hand embroidery courses, kits, live classes and online workshops from UK makers and artisan embroiderers. Embroidery is the art of decorating fabric with threads using a variety of stitches and colours. In the good old days, we learned the basics of simple hand embroidery like chain stitch, blanket stitch and cross stitch as a matter of course, but these are rare skills now. Embroidery is an ancient craft with dating back to the 5th Century BC. Embroidery is a skill that demands patience and attention to detail and it brings forth long-lasting works of art that are infused with these creative qualities.
