Workshops & Courses

I run embroidery workshops for people who want to learn how to stitch.

 

The workshops are a chance for you to learn a new skill, engage in a mindful activity and spend time in a relaxing environment. The therapeutic power of embroidery is being acknowledged more (click here and here for more information!) and I personally believe this ancient craft brought out a creativity and level of patience I never knew I possessed!

 

I run workshops for...​​

  • Museums and Galleries

  • Craft Houses

  • Hen parties, Birthdays and Baby Showers

  • Corporate/team-building events 

Locations can be arranged by myself for somewhere convenient to you and your group.

With years of experience in embroidery (both traditional and contemporary approaches) and a degree in teaching, I can promise my workshops are designed for all abilities and confidence levels.

What kind of workshops?

Learn to Embroider - 4-week course

Over the course of 4 weeks, you will learn a range of embroidery stitches to complete a floral design created by illustrator Savannah Storm. All materials will be included (as well as a drink on arrival*) and no prior experience of sewing is necessary.

The workshops will be on the following Thursday evenings, 6:30-8:30pm:

May 21st, May 28th, June 4th, June 11th 2020

At the end of the 4 weeks you will have finished your embroidery (and if not, you will be able to take home as many threads as you need to complete it!)
