Join Bats of Leisure for a three-part Embroidery Workshop Series, focussed on teaching you techniques and embroidery stitches ideal for designs of people, animals and objects!
You will learn embroidery stitches, as well as special techniques to define muscles, fur, clothing, and to add depth with tone, and textures!
At the end of the three-part workshop you will have created your own embroidered art piece to take home.
Wine, tea and coffee will be provided in our beautiful art studio in Coburg.
