Machine embroidery (advanced)

This workshop is really a creative play day where I open up my studio and its treasure trove of fabrics and machines for you to use! There is an extensive range of books for inspiration and tins full of beads and embellishments. We will explore techniques such as applique, patchwork and machine embroidery and work them together into “fabric recipes” that can be used for making projects or framed as Textile Art. Groups are small so if you are a complete beginner there will be plenty of help and guidance. I always try to ensure that everyone leaves with a finished piece, however you are welcome to commence a grand project while you are here!
