Advancers: Creative Expression
Application and Free-Motion Embroidery
This workshop will free your inner artist as you paint with fabric and draw with a sewing machine. The introductory workshop will kick start your tactile fabric journey with our craft tutor Talula.
Did you participate in our Intro to Sewing Machine Basics workshop? Fancy a dab at free machine embroidery, free motion sewing and applique next...?
This session is for Advancers who want to progress to the next level in machine sewing. You will get the chance to learn a technique on the sewing machine that’s easy and quick to pick up.
By the end of the evening you will create beautiful patterns & designs on fabric completing a finished piece to embellish later. The sample produced can be used as a base to add beads, buttons, sequins, diamantes and produce a unique piece of textile.
This class will be taught on our machines: the Husqvarna Viking Emerald 118, please bring any projects you are currently working on to the session, however materials will be available to purchase in store. All the learning from this session will be transferable to your own machine.
You can book using our 'early bird' rates up to 2 weeks prior to the session. Spaces are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment. You can also book a class with our wonderful staff team and volunteers in person at the hub, 131 Wood st.
