About the Course
Make some time for yourself and enjoy a relaxed day out with Annie in the art studio at Harbour House Centre for art and yoga in Kingsbridge, Devon. Annie has been creating mixed media work with freehand or 'freemotion' embroidery for 20 years and loves to share this fascinating skill. You will need to bring your own machine and leads as it is better for you to learn on your own machine. As long as you can either lower the machines' feed dogs or have a plate cover, your machine will be suitable.
Come and spend an enjoyable day playing with colourful fabrics, threads and sewing machines! "Many of my students just like to get carried away 'playing' with fabrics and experimenting rather than feeling under pressure to come up with a finished 'thing' to take home!" You are under no pressure at all to complete an item during our day workshops however if you would like to complete a cushion or some such item, you are more than welcome. You can choose to make a book cover, a storage pot or simply a little picture, whatever you like! Please make sure that you have a plate cover or that you can lower the feed dogs on your machine. Annie likes to teach you on your own machines so that you are familiar with the settings and can then recreate these when you are home after the course. Annie has been working with freemotion, or freehand machine embroidery for 20 years and will happily teach you lots of top tips and tricks on the day. Bring along your machine, some ideas or inspiration as a starting point and any bits and pieces you feel you may want to incorporate in your work. Annie will provide lots of fabrics and items for use on the day.
Complimentary teas and coffee will be provided as well as the essential chocolate or even a mince pie or two!
You are welcome to bring any materials with you that you may like to play with but many materials and threads will be provided. Feel free to bring any imagery that inspires you or (if you have one), your sketchbook!
Additional materials and haberdashery equipment will be available to purchase on the day.
