Sunday, 24 July 2022
10am - 4pm
In this 6 hour workshop (10am - 4pm) you’ll use freehand machine embroidery to create a stitched portrait of your home or chosen building. You’ll learn the different stages of making the portrait from initially tracing your chosen building to stitching it, then framing it up. I will teach you how to add in French knot flowers, applique doors and shrubbery. If you would like to, you will finish off by stamping the mount with a house name, street name or phrase to create a truly personalised portrait. The finished stitch could make a special gift for a wedding, new home or birthday or you could hang it in your own home to show off your new skill. This workshop would be most suited to people who have done freehand machine embroidery before, like our beginners workshop! A photograph of your chosen building will need to be sent to me (please send to two weeks before the workshop to allow initial preparation for the class. This workshop will take place at: May I Design Studio, Unit 18C Crawley Milly Industrial Estate, Dry Lane, Witney, OX29 9TJ. Please note my studio is on the first floor up a flight of stairs. All materials will be supplied including sewing machines. If you'd like to bring your own machine please do, you'll need an embroidery foot too. Teas and coffees will be provided but please bring your own lunch.
