Everyone loves a bunch of flowers!
A day to improve your free machine embroidery skills and give you the opportunity to explore how cut flowers can be represented in stitched art.
You will choose from a selection of composition sketches and an array of types of decorative papers. Coloured inks are used first to create the background. The papers can be torn or cut and then some will be arranged and slightly embedded into calico with gesso others will be PVA’d in place. Free machine embroidery is used to create detail and definition. Hand embroidery could then be added later.
£5 on the day for materials.
Sewing machine, flat bed tray and free motion foot

Paint brush for gesso

Ruler and pencil
* If you have a specific patterned decoupage paper you would like to use for the vase image feel free to bring this along or just choose from the selection provided on the day.
