Creative hand embroidery - New Brewery Arts Cotswolds Gloucestershire

About the Course

Based on her own free-style approach to embroidery, textile artist Kathleen Murphy will guide you through the pleasures of ‘doodling’ with needle and thread. This course aims to dispel the stuffiness sometimes associated with hand embroidery by encouraging a more experimental approach.
Each week, through a series of samplers, you will concentrate on a different topic or technique, which will be brought together as a cloth book in the final session. Along the way you will also have the opportunity to consider both the current and historic context of British embroidery. By the end of the five weeks you will be familiar with concepts such as stitch families, embroidery sums and seasoning stitches, and should have a good grounding on which to continue your hand stitch doodling beyond the course. Suitable for all abilities from beginners to those wishing to refresh their hand embroidery skills.

You can turn any of our courses into a short break by staying in our on site accommodation. When you book a residential package you will get discounted accommodation in our stylish boutique hostel located in the centre of Cirencester in the Cotswolds right next door to New Brewery Arts. Our former 19th Century Cotswold stone brewery barrel store has been beautifully transformed into 21st century accommodation, light and well-appointed with a craftsman’s attention to detail. We offer guest accommodation for up to 43 people over two floors in 14 rooms, with a choice of single, bunk, family and double bedrooms, 12 with en-suite facilities. A ground floor disabled-friendly room is also available. The hostel provides a stylish communal dining and relaxation area, self-catering kitchen, laundry facilities and lockers for your bike. As with all our courses and workshops these are led by experienced tutors and as you will be part of a small group there is plenty of time to focus on you.
