Hand Embroidery with Becky Stevens Stitches [June 2019]
Saturday, June 22, 2019 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm| £25
This workshop is all about upcycling your wardrobe in a simple but effective way! You’ll do this by using fabric stencils that stick to your clothes whilst stitching, then dissolve in water when you’re done. This is a great way to personalise old garments that might need refreshing with some colour and/or patterns!
You will be provided with all the materials you need, from a choice of thread colours to a range of different stencil patterns. If you have a specific pattern in mind, there will be plain stencil fabric to draw onto as well.
Becky is a hand-embroidery artist from Manchester and has several years’ experience in stitching and delivering workshops for all levels. She will be there to guide you on the best stitches to use, tips for using the stencils effectively and help you create your own patterns (if you’d like!)
To have a look at her work, go to her instagram @beckystevensstitches.
Skills: A range of hand embroidery stitches, using stencils on soluble fabric stencil paper, choosing thread colours/thread count to suit your project.
Level: All levels
Bring: Yourself and any clothes you’d like to embroider [No leather, avoid very thin fabrics]
