About the Course

Spend 2 glorious days in the company of renowned Textile Artist and Embroiderer Sarah Perry from Cornwall, in the very comfortable surroundings at the Green Farm creating your own “raised” embroidered bird. What better place could there be to stitch by the fire and watch the birds feeding outside on the birdfeeders in the garden? Enjoy Lucy’s wonderful home Aga-cooked lunch, biscuits and cakes and consider this to be a relaxing cosy Winter stitching retreat to prepare you for the run-up to Christmas. See Sarah’s work at  www.sarahjperrydesigns.com Embroidered Art for Nature Lovers.

“I love the birds in my garden and each time a different species comes along It inspires me all over again.Why not bring your patchwork background or plain fabric along and spend 2 days of relaxing hand sewing making a raised garden bird. The birds will be raised in layers and worked in long and short stitch.I will bring my threads and materials as well as pictures to trace your bird from but if you have a particular bird in mind please bring a picture with you. A small garden bird is the best to start with so that you learn the whole process.”
