Event description
Experimental Embroidery Workshops with Elnaz Yazdani

About this event

We are really excited to open our studio doors again and welcome back Leeds based textile artist and teacher Elnaz Yazdani for an experimental embroidery workshop.

It is easy to find the beauty and potential for embroidery using a wide range of alternative materials. 

In this experimental embroidery workshop you will be guided through a variety of hand embroidery techniques and stitches that will allow you to apply a range of alternative, up-cycled materials into your embroidery design and create your own unique piece of hoop art. 

Included in your ticket is your very own embroidery kit including hoop, threads, needles, fabric and a range of alternative materials to get your creative project underway. The techniques you learn in this workshop can be applied to any cloth, item of clothing or accessory so you can carry on stitching beyond the workshop.

Embroidery is also a great way to keep calm and reduce stress levels so come and enjoy the meditative wonders of the process of embroidery here at our lovely textile studio.

We've put some extra social distancing measures in place to keep everyone safe and calm without compromising your experience. Luckily we have a lovely big, airy space so there is plenty of room to social distance and we have put the following measures in place:

* All Materials will be individually packaged for you in your own kit

* Sanitising stations on entry and exit of all spaces

* Extra cleaning and hygiene measures in place

* Smaller class sizes and socially distanced workspaces on tables

* Face masks must be worn on arrival and while moving around in the studio, but can be removed once sitting down.

* We can provide tea and coffee if you bring your own reusable cups or you are welcome to bring your own drinks and snacks if you wish.

* Please do not attend the studio if you have experienced any symptoms of Covid 19 in the 14 days prior to attending or have been in contact with anyone else who has had symptoms.

* If this workshop needs to be cancelled due to Covid related government guidelines then it will be postponed to a later date or a gift voucher will be issued for you to use against future workshops.

These measures adhere with current government guidelines but we will keep them updated.

This is a beginners workshop and all levels welcome. This workshop can also be purchased as a gift certificate. 

We are really looking forward to welcoming everyone back.
