Textiles Art 'Elements' Workshop - free machine and hand embroidery
A session suitable for beginners, you will create a piece of textiles art to take home with you on the day. The session will begin with a quick demonstration from Harriet, showing you how to thread your machine and fit the free embroidery foot. Harriet will then begin showing you how to sew your pieces of fabric to the soluble stabiliser. After the demonstration you will start creating the free embroidery part of your artwork. Inspired by the elements, choose a colour (or combination of colours) in a variety of small pieces of fabric that we will sew together using free machine embroidery. We will then take a short break for lunch before you sew this free embroidered piece onto your background fabric then using embroidery thread to hand embroider a line or patterns. You will then stretch your art over your canvas to staple to the frame, finishing your 'elements' artwork.
What's included in the price?
A variety of fabrics will be provided, all threads, plus the canvas frame are all included. A sewing machine will also be available to use, however you may bring your own if you'd prefer.
