Hand Embroidery: from inspiration to stitch
In this workshop Caroline will show you how to work your way from an original idea - perhaps a favourite part of your garden or a view you encounter on a regular walk - to creating an embroidery. You will use little paint swatches, sketches, fragments of fabric and snippets of thread to create a palette or mini-mood board, before starting to stitch your original design. This course is aimed at people who have perhaps stitched a few kits and now want to move off-piste and develop their own ideas.
This course includes the basic materials, though there may be some extra fragments of inspiration available for sale on the day.
A few embroidery needles - I find the pink John James pebbles Cowslip sells are perfect.
A 5” or 6” embroidery hoop
- A pincushion - we change threads frequently
- A pair of small, sharp embroidery scissors
- A notebook and pencil
- A friction pen
- An apron
- A sewing machine (if wanting to use & please make sure it has been recently PAT tested) with feed dogs down and free motion embroidery foot, and a few machine needles (essential)
