About the Course

Join us for 3 x One Day workshops, inspired by the Four Seasons.

Moving on from Lazy Daisies we'll look at new ways to create embroidered flowers & landscapes, with a fresh contemporary approach. You'll make 'Hoop Art' embroideries inspired by the Four Seasons, learn new stitches, try ribbon work and layered techniques. The theme can be interpreted as you wish!

The class is friendly and welcoming and caters for all levels of experience including beginners.

Three x One Day Workshops - 11am-5pm, £150 for all 3, or £55 each.

Saturday 20th Jan (date tbc) - Exploring Stitches
Cretan, Sorbello & Eyelet stitch, will be covered in depth and with the opportunity to experiment with the stitches to see what textures and floral motifs can be developed from them.

Sun 4th Feb - Ribbon Work & Dyeing Workshop
Start the day with an introduction to Ribbon Embroidery flowers and in the afternoon you'll learn to make your own hand dyed ribbons, threads and fabrics for use in your hoop art project.

Sat 17th March - Four Seasons Hoop Art
You'll create a small piece of hoop art with floral motifs to your own design. We'll look at the design principles of composition and use of colour.

Can't make all the dates?
Don't worry, each workshop is self-contained and can be taken separately, so you can still come along even if you can't make all the workshops. If you sign up for one or more workshops, I'll also give you a free catch up pack for one workshop*, that you can work through at home.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
