Introduction to Freehand Machine Embroidery
In this workshop you will learn how to draw with your sewing machine. You will be shown all the basic techniques of freehand Machine Embroidery, and will play with mark making and infilling using different stitch types. Once you feel ready, we will help you to develop an image of your choice and create a small machine embroidered piece of artwork, which can be mounted and framed to take away complete. This workshop is suitable for complete beginners or anyone wanting to develop their practice. Both Maggie Allmark and Dr. Jack Roberts are accomplished textile artists and have exhibited their own machine embroidered work in galleries across the country.
You can choose to do a half day session and learn the basic techniques or a full day to complete a piece of embroidered work. We usually require you to bring your own sewing machine with the ability to drop the feed dog. However, if you really want to have a go before committing to buying a sewing machine, please get in touch as we can often let you use one of our own.
