Art & Craft Days - Create your own Textile Artwork - Beach Huts
Contact course provider
About the Course
Come and learn how to use a sewing machine to create beautiful works of art which can be framed or incorporated into other craft projects. Local textile artist Heidi Meier will be taking you through the stages required to create your own ‘Beach Huts’ artwork.
You will learn how to use free-style machine embroidery to create a layered applique artwork. There will be plenty of time to watch and practice techniques to help you achieve your design and opportunities for you to try your own creative flair in a fun and supportive environment. Beginners will learn all the key techniques and more advanced students will get the opportunity to work on more complex designs if they wish. Heidi will provide a list of fabrics required and you’ll get to use a template during the sessions to build the basic design. Once finished, the artwork can be framed or used as a panel to incorporate into other craft projects such as cushions or bags.
Students will need to bring
Sewing machines capable of working freestyle (i.e. the ability for the feed dogs to be dropped).
Embroidery hoop (anything between 8-10 inches is ideal)
General sewing kit (pins, fabrics, scissors etc.).
Sketch pad or drawing paper plus pencil.
Small fabric stash (e.g. fabric for the sky, different shade for the sea, sand etc.).

What's included in the price?
A selection of sandwiches, freshly baked scones with jam and cream and cakes together with a pot of tea or coffee. Fruit or herbal teas and decaf options also available.
I really enjoyed the two half-day workshops with Heidi. The pace was good and instruction very clear, with lots of design and technique ideas. Materials and equipment were excellent and the general atmosphere was friendly and fun. Tea and cake breaks were most welcome, as I am inclined to go for too long without a drink. I'd definitely consider a workshop with Heidi at The Butterfly Studio again.
