About this Event

Smocking is a decorative means of gathering a wide piece of material into a required measurement.

• How to prepare your fabric for smocking, creating gathers and pleating suitable material

• A choice of embroidery threads to use on pre-pleated fabrics

• Learning the hand embroidery stitches for the smocking

• All tools and notions needed for the process available in the class

• At the end of the workshop you will have your samples to take away

Lu Flux is a dressmaker who makes garments using vintage, natural and organic cloth. Each item is hand cut individually and embellished with traditional techniques such as patchwork, smocking and hand embroidery to produce unique yet wearable garments.

Lu lives and works in the Kent countryside.
