Event description
Use a range of alternative upcycled materials along with some embroidery and embellishment techniques to create your own piece of hoop art.

About this Event

Join Leeds based textile artist and tutor Elnaz Yazdani for a reuse, recycle embroidery design workshop and find the beauty in using a wide range of alternative materials for embroidery.

In this workshop, you will be guided through a variety of hand embroidery and embellishment techniques using a range of alternative, up-cycled materials to create your own unique piece of hoop art. The techniques you will learn can be applied to any cloth, item of clothing or accessory so you can carry on stitching beyond the workshop.

Embroidery is a great way to keep calm and reduce stress levels so come and enjoy the meditative wonders of the process of embroidery.

Who is the workshop for?

The workshop is suitable for complete beginners as well as those with some embroidery experience, all levels are welcome.

Do I need to bring anything?

All materials and equipment will be provided.

Working Safely

We have made some changes to ensure everyone feels confident and safe to come and join in without fear of catching Coronavirus. Our courses are running with fewer participants and a larger space to allow plenty of room for social distancing. In line with government guidance we are also requesting that students attend with a mask or face covering.

We hope that being able to immerse yourself with something creative will help to restore a sense of wellbeing and hopefulness as we navigate the ‘new normal’.

If you have any concerns or specific requirements regarding attending a course please feel free to get in touch with us by emailing info@the-arthouse.org.uk.

Course Booking Terms and Conditions

Workshop and course bookings can be cancelled and refunded up until 7 days before the scheduled start date. Our workshops support the work we do as a charity, and because materials and equipment are ordered in advance, we regret that refunds cannot be offered less than 7 days before the workshop date. Please note that Eventbrite's booking fee is non-refundable.

We can offer the option to transfer to another course or transfer your ticket to a friend or relative in the event that you can’t attend due to Covid-19.

In the event that The Art House needs to cancel a workshop for any reason, for example due to tutor illness or if lockdown measures are put back in place your ticket will be refunded in full.
