Free Machine Embroidery Textile Workshop

Distance from the centre of Kingsbridge: 0.1 miles

Fun and friendly textile workshops in the art studio. Anyone is welcome to come, and the sessions are suitable for beginners and intermediate level. Just bring yourself, a smile and your sewing machine! Tea and coffee provided. 

We will cover how to apply fabrics and designs to a base cloth and embellish with freehand machine embroidery. We will start the day by looking at some inspiring contemporary textiles and talk about colour choices and design elements. Before the day ends, if you wish, you may learn how to transform your piece into something such as a small lantern or pot, a purse, cushion or simply a framed picture. However, students have got so carried away in the past that they simply want to continue stitching until the very end! Feel free to bring along any cherished fabrics, trims or notions that you may want to use. Freehand machine embroidery is a hugely popular skill to learn, so beware, this is addictive! Lots of fabrics will be provided and any additional haberdashery products or tools will be available to purchase at the workshop.

Annie Morris is a textile artist based in Devon. She specialises in luxury machine embroidered items for interiors.

Cost: £50 per workshop
