What will we do

Learn to explore and combine stitches, materials and scale to develop your creativity. This course is suitable for people who already use stitch within their work and would like to explore embroidery techniques further. We will talk about contemporary artists and makers  as well as a variety of creative approaches. The class will begin with mark making, working on composition and will progress to translating marks into embroidered surfaces. 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!”
