Learn hand embroidery in a relaxed, creative environment at my studio, and make a keepsake London map. You will start by learning basic embroidery stitches, and practice these on the provided fabric before moving on to embroidering the London map which is based on my original drawing. You can embroider this with your favourite spots or routes, and create something truly personal. The class is suitable for all levels, and beginners are welcome. You will get lots of one-on-one help, top tips, and a list of London fabric shops and haberdasheries to take away and explore.
