Hand embroidery courses

Find hand embroidery courses, classes and workshops taught all across the UK. Embroidery is the art of decorating fabric with threads using a variety of stitches in many 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 even these are not taught in many schools 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. If you would like to learn hand embroidery please browse our many courses and workshops and be inspired by an expert embroidery teacher who will share their skill with you.
