What will we do
Treat yourself to a creative day learning a new skill at my studio and embroider a custom map of a place that is special to you. Working with a map of your choice, you will learn to develop a drawing of the map, transfer your drawing on to fabric, use a variety of embroidery stitches & leave with a beautiful piece of art that you can frame. The small group size means you will get lots of one-on-one help and top tips.
What you need to bring
All materials, use of tools and equipment is included. Basic familiarity with a sewing machine is required. The only thing you need to bring along is a printout of your map. If you don’t have access to a printer simply email me the image of the map and I will be happy to print it for you.

Here’s what our happy students say
“I thoroughly enjoyed the course with Ekta, renewing my interest in sewing, yet doing something I had never done before ie machine embroidery. I decided to come to Ekta’s workshop because I so liked what she made for the Christmas Fair and I wanted to learn her techniques. I am close to retirement and am looking to spend time doing something creative, making items that are unique, attractive and useful and can be given as presents. I am so inspired I am now bidding on e-bay for a Bernina sewing machine!”
“I so enjoyed the course – it was really well structured and delivered in a way that was supportive, encouraged confidence and crucially – was hugely inspiring. I went home, my head buzzing with ideas and have already managed to carve out some time to do some hand stitching embellishment (place names) and dust off my sewing machine – just to be check that I could do free embroidery – ( I can)!
