Join Victoria for this workshop when you will be embroidering and embellishing a pre printed design of her original paintings. This workshop is the perfect way to start with embroidery, and it is suitable for all skill levels as you will work alongside her at every step. You will be hand embroidering onto pre printed fabric panels that have been printed with her painted designs on organic half cotton panama. There will be the opportunity to apply simple hand embroidery techniques onto the panels to make it unique to you. She will also show you how to add applique flowers and detail to the panel. The areas that you choose to embroider will be of your choice, but she will provide guidance, and this can be tailored to your skill level so it is possible to grow slowly. There will be a choice of the size of the fabric panels measuring 24 x 24cm. The panels can be made into a variety of uses including a cushion with the addition of your own backing, or a framed piece of art.
There will be a choice of the following designs:
Cat with Banana Leaf , Kingfisher, Rabbit, Squirrel or Robin
You will have an embroidery kit supplied that you will then be able to take home, so you will be able to continue with the embroidery if you would like to add more detail and build on the skills learnt in class. Kit Contents: – The fabric panel printed on organic half panama cotton in your chosen design. – DMC threads to match and complement your design – Embroidery hoop – John James embroidery needle – Calico bag to keep your project in and to decorate with leftover thread. I will guide you through the basic stitches, this style of stitching is achievable for complete beginners, as you will learn one stitch at a time with beautiful DMC threads. There will be plenty of time to practice the stitches, and you will leave with confidence.
