SOLD OUT Introduction to Embroidery Art

*This event is sold out. We are running another event with Paraffle Embroidery – Introduction to Embroidery.*

Aimed at beginners or those looking to brush up on their skills, this creative workshop is the perfect opportunity to learn the essentials of hand embroidery.

With a hands-on, informal approach, Sammy Bishop of Paraffle Embroidery will show you all you need to know to complete a piece of embroidery to hang in your own home. Inspired by our exhibition May Morris: Art & Life, you will use a Paraffle design created especially for this workshop as a template.

All materials are provided. Workshop suitable for 16+, unless accompanied by an adult also attending the workshop.

Tickets £20.00 (+ booking fee), all materials are included.

Every ticket sold supports the work of The Dovecot Foundation to advance visual art, craft and design in all its forms.

This workshop is part of our Christmas Weekend on 7 and 8 December. Festive workshops on 8 December include Create your own Morris & Co Pincushion , Hand Quilting Techniques and Festive Blockprinting.
