About the Course

The ‘pebble’ technique was originally developed from working samples produced for a Coastal exhibition. Participant’s will spend the day exploring a layered fabric manipulation and quilting technique and create a highly ornate, and textural sample, in their chosen colour way, that can be used on bags, cushion covers and garments. This is an ideal workshop for beginners and the more experienced in free machine embroidery.

All materials inc embroidery threads are provided but participants need to bring:

Sewing machine and manual

Extension lead

Free- machine or darning foot (sample cannot be achieved without this foot)

A couple of spare bobbins
