What will we cover?

Using pre-printed or coloured cotton fabrics each layer is treated with different embroidery stitches ranging from simple straight stitches to slightly more advanced bullion knots so this is a perfect day out for embroiderers of all skill levels. The embroidery style is a free-for-all and with a ‘no-right-or-wrong’ attitude, this is a great session to come and give hand embroidery a go. There is a pattern to follow if you wish, or you can take inspiration from the original design and go wild with your own creation.

 

How will I be taught?

You’ll be taught in our lovely studio by a friendly and experienced tutor, through demonstration and guidance as you work.

 

You’ll also be able to ask questions, making sure everything is clear and that you’re getting the best results you can.

Do I need any previous experience or skills?

This is suitable for embroiders of all skill levels.

Are materials provided? Is there anything I need to source myself?

All materials are provided (10cm wooden embroidery hoop, backing fabric, pre-printed cotton fabrics, threads, bead/sparkle trimmings, and felt to back) but do bring sewing tools you are comfortable with, ie: needles, threaders and fabric/embroidery scissors if you have them. You may also wish to bring your own piece of ribbon/lace to hang the hoop from.

What will I take home with me?

You’ll go home feeling inspired, having made a great start on your festive stitchscape.

Refreshments

Drinks and biscuits will be available but we recommend that you bring a packed lunch with you.

Beth Power

Beth is an embroidery and textile artist from East Sussex who has always loved creating, sewing and playing with (or hoarding!) beautiful fabrics. Since completing a degree in Mixed Media Textiles at De Montfort University, Leicester, she has developed her own distinctive style of embroidery art using pre-printed or coloured fabrics to build up landscapes (affectionately known as Stitchscapes) which are then highly embellished with multiple forms of hand embroidery. With a free-style approach and a no-right-or-wrong attitude, her art pieces are becoming more textured and three-dimensional, with an eye for colour and patient attention to detail in every one. What started as a hobby has now turned into a flourishing embroidery business, Dotty Textiles.
