About the Course
Over the course of the day you will be guided through a combination of simple stumpwork, applique and hand embroidery techniques to make a 3D bug brooch with wings.
Bostini Bugs can be found flitting in and out of the shafts of sunlight which pierce the trees in the forest near the workshop of Murgatroyd & Bean. They are often brightly coloured, highly decorative bugs who would like nothing more than to sit on your lapel and bask in the admiration of all who see them.
Skill level: intermediate. Suitable for those with some previous hand stitch experience.
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.
