Liz Thomas – Creative Hand-stitched ‘Scapes’ course.



A series of SIX monthly workshops, each one concentrating on a distinctive theme.

Starting on Sunday October 23rd 2016. Sundays from 10 - 4 pm, £45 per workshop.

The course is designed to encourage experimentation and the creative use of stitch.

Each session is a stand-alone, hands-on, practical workshop.

However, anyone able to attend all the sessions will experience the use of hand-stitched embroidery to express their ideas along with a variety of techniques such as embellishing, piecing and layering, fraying, appliqué, bonding, colouring and beading where appropriate.


The course will also include the elements and principles of design and drawing but please don't panic about this, you do not have to be good at drawing!!

A wide range of fabrics and threads will be available for each session.
