Embroider a drawing June 2nd 2019

June 2, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Embroider a drawing or design onto a cushion

This class evolved from a very special family drawing Reneeā€™s son Oscar drew as a 3 year old. As the marker lines on the drawing began to fade, Renee knew she needed to do something to preserve this special artwork. She embroidered the drawing onto a cushion which has adorned their sofa ever since, bringing smiles on a regular basis.

If you have such a drawing, or something you have drawn yourself. This workshop is perfect for helping you preserve this artwork in thread.

WHAT WILL I CREATE? A hand embroidered drawing of personal significance to you stitched on to a cushion.

WHAT WILL BE PROVIDED? everything you need to create your embroidered cushion, including the pre-made fabric cushion ready to be embroidered on. All thread, embroidery hoops and needles will be provided. We’ll also enjoy a delicious afternoon tea including tea and coffee. A take home instruction booklet with comprehensive stitch instructions and suggestions to where to go from here is also included so you can continue your stitching journey beyond this class.

WHAT WILL I BRING? The original drawing you would like to re-create, plus 2 clear photocopies.

CLASS LEVEL: This is a beginner friendly class.
