Event description

Description

Designer and maker Siya of Doodleduck Designs has teamed up with The Craft House to bring you a beautiful Contemporary Hand Embroidery workshop. This is a nice and easy workshop to get you started with a range of stitches and create your own piece of embroidery hoop art.

Hand embroidery is the perfect way to relax and practice mindfulness*. Once you have learned the basic stitches, you can use hand embroidery to unwind and increase your feeling of well-being.

At this workshop you will be provided with a butterfly design and a sampler and will be taught a range of stitches, including satin stitch, back stitch, chain stitch and French knots. You will be shown how to use thread as a creative tool and given inspiration to get you into a creative flow!

There is no rush with this lovely slow stitching class, so there's no presure to complete your embroidered piece by the end of the session - you will have the materials and equipment to finish off your work in your own time, armed with lots of helpful tips. You will also leave with a contemporary embroidery pattern and the knowledge to create a number of lovely stitches which can be applied to any cloth or clothing item.

(*A little fact about mindfulness and thread as therapy - the repetitive action of stitching has offered us mindfulness therapy for thousands of years, using just a simple needle and thread. Stitching can help you to relax and take your mind away from your everyday worries. Siya recommends Emma Swinnerton's "Mindful Stitch: Generating Dialogue in and around the threads of Wellbeing" for anyone interested in the subject of thread therapy).

Skill Level: suitable for beginners aged 16+, as well as being a lovely, relaxing day for more experienced stitchers.

Cost: £50 per person - includes embroidery floss, hoop, needles, original pattern and material. All the equipment you need will be available in class and we also provide complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits.
