About the Course

Learn some simple stitches and the techniques you need to complete your own embroidery projects.

Who is this course for
Absolute beginners, so you can learn your lazy daisy from your herringbone and your running stitch from your satin stitch. Or even, learn how to thread a needle and not panic if you get into a tangle.

What does this course cover
Start with the very basics of embroidery and let's see how far we can get in 12 sessions.

What will it be like
The lessons will start with tutor demonstrations and videos and group instruction and one-to-one help throughout the lesson. We also hope that the class will be positive, friendly and fun.
There will be an optional coffee break half way through the lesson.

- Visual demonstration and verbal explanation.
- Written handouts with visual diagrams.
