Do It Club: Slow Stitch Embroidery Workshop
Dates June 17, 2021 - June 17, 2021
Times 11:00 am
Location Oxford House
In this workshop, you will learn the slow, meditative practice of laying and anchoring ribbon, cord and yarn onto fabric using embroidery thread. You will be guided through the process from formulating your own idea and learning techniques to create your design, to completing your project. You will be taught a minimum of 3 basic embroidery stitches or more depending on where your stitching takes you. We will focus on enjoying the process and intuitively developing your piece. You will leave with a work in progress or a complete project that is both stitched and displayed in an embroidery hoop. All materials will be provided, however if you have any ribbon, cord or yarn that you would like to use to make your creation more personal, please do bring it along. Absolute beginners to more experienced embroiderers welcome.
This workshop is part of Oxford House’s Do it Club!, this is our summer programme of creative activities, led by inspiring artists and practitioners. Each week we will have a different activity encouraging you to try new things and unleash your creativity. Newbies are warmly welcomed! Tickets will be released a few weeks before each club so if this workshop is sold out please look to try a different club on another day.
