• SOLD OUT Flower Embroidery Workshop with Chloe Patience

Florals for spring – groundbreaking? When it comes to hand-embroidered and embellished flowers then yes! Join award-winning textile designer Chloe Patience to learn the essentials of hand embroidery and beading techniques using threads, beads, and sequins, with the floral motifs of Orla Kiely A Life in Pattern serving as inspiration.

Taught in a small, informal group, this is the perfect class for newcomers to embroidery and those who want to improve their skills. At a moment when hand-embroidery is being seen everywhere from Gucci to H&M, this is an opportunity to create a stunning sample and to explore how to apply techniques to your own designs.

Tickets cost £45 (+ booking fee)
