Creative Hand Embroidery Course

Based on her own free-style approach to embroidery, Kathleen Murphy will guide you through the pleasures of doodling in stitch.

By encouraging a more experimental approach, this short course aims to dispel the stuffiness sometimes associated with hand embroidery. Each week we will concentrate on a different topic or technique through a series of samplers which will be brought together as a cloth book. Along the way there will be the opportunity to consider both the current and historic context of British embroidery. .
By the end of five weeks, Kathleen will have introduced you to concepts such as Stitch Families, Embroidery Sums and Seasoning stitches, to equip you with a good grounding on which to continue your hand stitch doodling beyond the course.

Skill Level: suitable for all abilities from beginners to those who wish to refresh their hand embroidery skills.
