Hand Embroidered Landscapes (Online Workshop)

Description Long

Join artist Louise for this 3 hour workshop exploring textiles. During this workshop you will be using a variety of fabrics and hand embroidery stitches to create a landscape or seascape. The session will explore how to select, piece and layer fabrics to create the background for the landscape. The details will then be built up with stitch and embellishments to complete your work.

What you need to bring with you:

  • The artist will be creating packs to send out to you in advance but you will need a basic sewing kit including embroidery scissors and needles of various sizes.
  • You may also wish to have an image of a landscape or seascape that you would like to recreate or any fabrics or threads you would like to include in your work.

Due to the implications of Covid-19 this workshop will be staged online. Participants will receive clear information on how to access this workshop in advance. The artist is preparing packs that will be sent out in advance for participants including some of the resources you will need for this workshop.

The latest booking date to receive a pack is one week prior to the workshop to ensure packs are received on time. If booking after this date you will have to provide all of your own materials to use.
