Description

It’s time to customise your closet, DIY those dungarees, makeover that muumuu. Give your wardrobe a new life using the ancient art of embroidery.

Aside from the tangible, embroidery practice rewards you with patience, precision, relaxation, creativity, and precious time away from your phone.

At the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to give your grandma a run for her money and earn some serious street cred by confidently customising your existing clothes. Each participant will leave the class with a mini hoop to take home.

01 July 2018 • Introduction to French Embroidery

The pattern we were given to practice on was lovely, and it was great to get all the materials. Clearer explanations of the stitches would've been appreciated, and some more general info about the hoops, how to transfer patterns etc. The instructor was good about providing assistance when asked directly, though.

Introduction to French Embroidery was the perfect Thursday evening. I loved how each technique was shared and then we were given the opportunity to have a go. Some explanations of stitches would have benefitted from more detail and a more explicit modeling but it is tricky with a small hoop and delicate work. I loved how we left with everything we needed to continue our works at home!
