Creative Machine Embroidery course, Phoenix Brighton


This is a two day course in which you will learn how to set up your machine and how to stitch on different surfaces, including cloth and paper. We will explore how to make different kinds of mark with the sewing machine. Starting with drawing, from life or photographs, and then transferring those drawings onto cloth. We will be playing with scale and colour through the use of appliqué.

Over the two days you will build up a collection of samples of different techniques as a resource for your future use when stitching at home. You will also put together all you have learned to create a final stitched drawing which could be stretched over a frame to hang on the wall or made into a bag or cushion.

Costs: £90
Days: 1 weekend
Times: 11:30 - 17:30
Dates: 13 & 14 July
