Suitable for beginners and those who are familiar with stitching, this 2 hour mixed media embroidery class is a chance to explore colour and texture through mixed media on embroidery hoop art. Create your very own handmade and bespoke work of art during this fun workshop, which will leave you with all the basic techniques needed to continue this therapeutic craft at home.

Incorporating mixed media, such as watercolour, sequins and gold leaf, this modern and quirky take on traditional embroidery will inspire your inner artist to create! The workshop provides (and is not limited to) 4 template designs to pick from (including abstract landscapes, figurative imagery, and of course the traditional embroidered calligraphy letter). Those who wish to create their own design are free to do so!

These embroidered art-works make great gifts for birthdays, new homes, babies and seasonal holidays of course!
An introduction to various stitching techniques (back-stitch, regular stitch and French knot)
