One Day Workshops

One day Free Machine Embroidery workshops:

I provide full tuition for up to 15  students, a busy but fun day for all. 

I will provide a kit for each participant, including a selection of my hand painted fabrics (at an additional cost) or students can bring their own supplies. In any of my workshops, if they wish, students can use commercially produced fabrics.

Each student will need to provide their own sewing machine, with the facility to do free-machine embroidery as well as a traditional straight stitch.

Additionally, students will also need to provide a variety of machine embroidery thread (colours will be listed in the workshop details). 

Each 1 day workshop costs £160
