Workshop: Learn how to free motion embroider (beginners/ improvers)


Wednesday 16 January 2019

10am to 3pm

Venue: Fordham Heath


Max no. students: 4


Price - £50 if you book before 31st December 2018 - £55 thereafter.



If you would like to learn how to use a sewing machine needle to draw your own freehand art onto fabric, then this is the workshop for you.


Heidi will demonstrate a variety of techniques which you will then get the chance to practise.  By the end of the session you will have worked on a design which you can then later frame or incorporate into another project such as a cushion, handbag etc.


You can work to your own design or use one of Heidi's available templates.  This flexibility is particularly useful if you wanted to attend a specific themed workshop which was fully booked or if you couldn't make that date.  So for example you could work on a picture of a favourite pet or you could base your design on one of Heidi's 'Seedheads' workshop templates.
