Hand Embroidered Shopper Class

9 Apr

Fed up of seeing the same boring shoppers every time you walk around town? Yes. We are too. So come along and make your very own, custom designed, handmade, one of a kind shopper to trump all other shoppers. Yes.

Using traditional hand embroidery stitches with a contemporary vintage twist you will learn all the skills essential for getting to grips with this exciting decorative technique.

This class will introduce you to a vast array of foundation stitches including, running stitch, chain and back stitch, blanket stitch, satin stitch and French knots to create exciting patterns and motifs. You will then mix these stitches to gain a variety of effects, texture and how to work with traditional hoops, mixing yarns and threads to give your work a new crafty dimension.

Motifs can be designed free hand translating your own original ideas, or by working with a selection of vintage transfers provided. The possibilities are endless! At the end of this course you will have a lovely embroidered cotton shopper + sampler!
