Course Start Dates
About the Course
Come & create your very own silhouette embroidery, with demonstrations from a local embroidery artist.
This workshop is ideal for any experience level, including beginners & provides you with everything you need to create your very own bespoke Embroidery hoop.
Once you have purchased the Every Body Embroidery workshop ticket, please send a selection of photographs that you would like to be used to create your pattern. I will help you choose the best image to translate into an embroidery and will then create your very own personalised pattern. I will stay in contact with you throughout this process to ensure you are happy with the design. This pattern will then be ready and waiting for you on the day of the workshop.
*Please note* Images must be sent no later than 2 weeks before the event. Contact me for more details
Your own bespoke pattern and instruction booklet comes specifically tailored to your pattern and kit. This contains lots of detail and pictures with step by step directions for every step of the way. This kit is ideal for any experience level, including beginners.
If you’re anything like me, videos are by far the easiest way to learn. As us crafty folk tend to be more visual learners, I have also created a series of fully narrated video tutorials for you to revisit once the course is completed.
I created the Every Body Embroidery kit & workshop to encourage body positivity, no matter your size or shape; however big or small, every body is beautiful & deserves to be celebrated!
Please let me know if you would not like me to share images of your pattern on social media ♥️
I will be offering hands on & one-to-one demonstrations every step of the way, to ensure you feel happy & confident to continue hand embroidering beyond the workshop.
We will be aiming to complete the hoop during the session, however, there is no rush! Embroidery is a great way to relax & unwind, so it is more important for you to take your time & enjoy the day. You will be leaving the workshop with the skills to complete your embroidery at home. The class is scheduled for 2.5hrs, however the space is available for longer should you wish to continue with your piece.
Archive Bar & Bottle is situated right next to Cheadle Hulme train station (which is only an 18 minute train journey from Manchester Piccadilly). Parking is also available at the train station for those of you driving to the event.
I can’t wait to meet you!
