Butterfly Embroidery Workshop
21st May 2019
Butterfly One Day Embroidery Workshop, Tuesday 21st May, 10am-3pm, £60
Butterflies conjure up images of sunshine, the warmth and colour of flowery meadows and summer gardens teaming with life. Areas rich in butterflies and moths provide a wide range of environmental benefits, including pollination and natural pest control.
The image here shows an early sketch before the embroidery has been worked – the embroidery is still in the development stage at the moment!
Learn new skills and become absorbed and fascinated by this ancient art of narrative embroidery, with a modern twist.
Our workshops provide you with the six basic stitches used within the Quaker Tapestry: Stem, Split, Chain, Quaker, Bayeux Point and Peking Knot. In a relaxed and friendly environment our tutors will guide you through the stitches. Helping you work towards an embroidered picture to finish at home. You don’t need to have any experience in embroidery before you attend the workshop. For those of you who have done some stitching before, this is an opportunity to learn something new and refresh your skills.
Stitch Kit – You will be provided with our workshop kit consisting of all the materials needed to create and finish a stitched picture including: stitching guidelines, finishing tips sheets, calico cloth, crewel needle and Appletons crewel embroidery wool. All the prep is done for you so we’ll be starting stitching straight away!
Equipment – There will be equipment available to use during the workshop.
Refreshments – Hot drinks and biscuits are ‘on-tap’ throughout the session and lunch is available to buy from our on-site Cafe.
FREE entry to the Quaker Tapestry Museum for all attendees on the day of the workshop.
