Freehand Machine Embroidery House Portrait - New Brewery Arts Cotswolds Gloucestershire

Freehand Machine Embroidery House Portrait - New Brewery Arts Cotswolds Gloucestershire

About the Course

Stitch your own house portrait.
In this workshop you’ll use freehand machine embroidery to create a stitched portrait of your home or chosen building. You’ll learn the different stages of making the portrait. From initially tracing your chosen building, to stitching it, then framing it up. Meg will teach you how to add in French knot flowers, applique doors and shrubbery.
If you would like to, you will finish off by stamping the mount with a house name, street name or phrase to create a truly personalised portrait. The finished stitch could make a special gift for a wedding, new home or birthday or you could hang it in your own home to show off your new skill.

This class would be most suited to people who have done freehand machine embroidery before, like our Introduction to Freehand Machine Embroidery workshop! A photograph of your chosen building will need to be sent to New Brewery Arts two weeks before the workshop to allow initial preparation for the class.

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.
