Description

Creoate and Moody Brights Designs welcome you to come and learn to hand embroider through 6 fun and relaxing classes. Join the whole 6 week course or Drop in for a single session.

** YOU MUST BOOK A TICKET HERE **

If you have not purchased a ticket 24 hours before the event, your RSVP will be released for someone else.

Each week we'll be exploring a different embroidery project, so don't forget to read the weekly breakdown!

  • Week 1 (17/01) - Learn Vintage Redwork Embroidery

  • Week 2 (24/01) - Make Some Hoop Art With Embroidery

  • Week 3 (31/01) - Embroider Your Favourite Feminist Quote or Image

  • Week 4 (07/02) - Upcycle a T-Shirt with Embroidery (Bring Your Own Tshirt)

  • Week 5 (14/02) - Celebrate and Stitch on Valentine's Day

  • Week 6 (21/02) - Journey Through Folk Embroidery Traditions

From traditional redwork embroidery in week 1, using mostly a back stitch, to the more complicated satin stitch in week 6, you'll have plenty of opportunities to learn new (and old) exciting ways of using embroidery to upcycle or embellish items you love (or don't love anymore).

With a zero waste approach wherever possible, this series of workshops is about adding a touch of colour and character to your home or garments, but don't you worry, complete beginners are absolutely welcome, and so are creative thinkers, messy makers and ambitious crafters! January blues defeat guaranteed!One stitch at a time, I promise you'll want to embroider your knickers by the end of it. I'm serious!You can buy a ticket (or more) for any of the workshop project you like, take a friend, a partner (we have a special take on Valentine's Day too, if looking for something crafty to do - whether or not with a companion, check week 5!), or just gift it to someone you like! And you can also save a tenner and buy a 6 week bundle! It's up to you. What’s included?

  • Standard size hoops will be for sale for £2 for you to take home. If you have a project in mind that requires a bigger or smaller hoop it’s ok, but you might have to bring this to the class.

  • There will be threads available for use and practice, if you want very specific colours and don’t want to be disappointed, bring those to class too.

  • Scraps of fabric to practice will be provided, and so will be the needles.
