About the Course
This day-long workshop focuses on translating drawings into stitch - it is the perfect opportunity for anybody who wants to combine drawing with textiles under the experienced eye of artist and tutor Shelley Morrow. Over the course of the day you will be taking existing drawings and learning how to transfer them onto fabric with hand stitch - in the afternoon we will be working more freely, painting onto fabric with ink and embellishing the surface with hand stitch. No previous experience is necessary – this session is for all abilities, including complete beginners.
The session will be tutored by Shelley Morrow with a materials provided; you will need to bring your own drawings as a starting point for your stitch work. Booking is essential as we expect the session to sell out - you can either book via the link below or in person at the Draw studio. If you book via the website please bring your printed or digital receipt as proof of payment and if you book using the student rate please bring your student ID.
The session starts at 10:30am and you are welcome to arrive from 10:15am - the main doors of New England House will be locked so you'll just need to call the phone number on the door to be let in.

All materials are provided, so you can come to the session unequipped. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available throughout the session and there will be a lunch break half way through the day – you are welcome to bring a packed lunch or go out for lunch at a nearby café. As we will be working with inks in the afternoon, please wear clothing that can be painted in.
I had booked this work shop for me and partner to do. Stitch is not something I’d done before and I really didn’t know what to expect from the day. Shelley was really great at being able to work with each individual finding a suitable and fun way into the process. At no point did I feel pushed to do anything I didn’t want to, but invited to explore the process in a way that best suited me.
There is no entry bar of standard that an individual must be as Shelley is especially good at being able to keep a group together despite all working on their own projects.
Shelley is a great calming influence which is a much needed thing in today’s busy and chaotic world. The Draw studio is brilliant space to do workshops in. Always full of great work to inspire just about everyone around the room.
Before this workshop I really thought I’d have a play, and never touch the process again. In truth, I’ve already had another go in my own time. Can’t recommend it enough.
