Hand Stitched Folk Art Hangers using applique and embroidery with Julie Brand from Tigley Textiles in Worcester
Contact course provider
About the Course
This is a hand embroidery, slow stitching workshop for all those people who need to escape from their everyday chaotic life for a day and completely lose themselves in this addictive hobby. All designs and materials will be provided but you will be encouraged to create your own one off piece. Lots of examples will be around to inspire your creative juices.
Stitches can be as complicated as you want to make them but sometimes the simplest ones are the most effective. This is suitable for a complete beginner or the more advanced embroiderer. You will choose from several different designs and will embellish your design with some carefully chosen words, buttons, lace and fabrics. At the end of the day you will take away a finished piece beautifully hung from a wire heart hanger. These small but perfectly formed hangers will brighten up any dark corner and are guaranteed to make you smile.

Made a lovely heart hanger today at Julie's workshop. Her studio is beautifully presented with inspiring work on the walls.
I was spoilt for choice when it comes to fabrics, threads, buttons, beads, and lovely dyed lace.
I love embellishing things so I was in my element.
In my humble opinion I think Julie's work is up there with the best.
I look forward to my Dragonfly and Hare workshop in May.
Thank you for a lovely day.

I have loved this creative workshop, having the freedom to create your own design but with the fantastic support and guidance from Julie to make my visualisation come true.

An absolutely delightful day in beautiful surroundings making a bird house wall hanging. Julie taught me how to layer various fabrics to give depth, lots of sewing with advice on colours/shades etc to help with the design. I've loved it and can't wait for the next course, I'm looking forward to it so much.

Loved this workshop. Valuable help from Julie to achieve an original piece of work which I will hang proudly in my home. Met up with some lovely lady stitchers, can highly recommend.
