Description

Join artists Maud Barrett & Veronica Rowlands in this special edition of Sew Thrifty. Spend the morning embroidering your own upcycled fabric then, in the afternoon, turn your thrifty stitching into a unique book cover!

Embroidery & Book Cover Course

10am-1pm: The Embroidery Lab with Veronica Rowlands

Join Veronica in this morning session where participants will be introduced to a range of hand embroidery stitches and techniques, creating their own sampler and then go on to create a mini embroidery piece/embellishment for their book cover.

2pm-5pm: Sew Your Own Book Cover with Maud Barrett

After a quick lunch break, your afternoon will be spent making a charming and unique book cover using your embroidered fabric. Maud will teach you how to measure and cut your fabric to fit your book’s dimensions and will guide you to make the book cover using machine and hand sewing techniques. Finally you will learn how to applique your embroidery onto your cover.

*Materials and sewing machines are provided but we encourage you to bring any unwanted clothing or fabric to upcycle.
