One-day workshop // 10am - 5pm // Cost: £60 + cost of fabric (minimal) // Skill Level: Pure Beginner and up // Instructor: Susie Haigh of Podnip
Learn how to 'draw' with your sewing machine and make something personalised and fun for yourself, a friend, or a loved one.
Free-motion embroidery is a little bit like drawing with your sewing machine: the constraints are removed, leaving you free to move your fabric around and make all sorts of wonderful motifs. This, as you may expect, is a liberating experience for anyone used to 'normal' sewing, and its bags of fun for everyone, regardless of your sewing experience.
In this one-day workshop, Podnip Designer, Susie Haigh, will be showing you how to customise your belongings with Appliqué and Free-motion Embroidery techniques. Students will then have the rest of the day to play and create artworks of their own, with the option to make a free-motion decorated cushion cover. Once you learn this technique you can apply it to cushions, bags, quilts, or wherever your imagination takes you!
