Beginners hand embroidery

Description

During this workshop students will learn how to correctly hoop fabric, choose appropriate fabrics and threads, and learn a variety of basic stitches. We then move on to altering the stitches learnt, to create new effects, widen knowledge of various stitches and explore textured and unusual threads. By the end of the day students will have a sampler in a hoop that they can display, as well as the skills to continue with embroidery at home. The workshop is held in my studio above Parlours of Saltburn, which is up a flight of stairs without a lift. I want my workshops to be accessible for everyone so if this would prevent you from accessing the workshop please contact me and I'll happily book and alternative venue within Saltburn.

I am a textile artist, tutor and community arts practitioner. I live on the North East Coast and work from my studio and gallery in Saltburn by the Sea. My artwork is inspired by people; their relationships and memories - I am to create a snapshot in time. I have taught a range of workshops for many years. My aim is for students to leave with a wealth of new knowledge, having created something unique to them. Workshops focus on exploration, experimenting with techniques and having fun.
