Ancient Craft: Hand Embroidery

Numbers limited to 20 per class. Age 16+

In this workshop, Sarah Homfray (embroiderer, artist & author) will show you the centuries-old art of hand embroidery, looking specifically at samplers. After exploring about the history of samplers and the stories behind them, you will work on your own small sampler, learning about the threads, stitches and how to create an individual design of your very own to take away and finish at home. Follow the design provided by Sarah or bring along a picture of your house and Sarah will show you how to transform it into a design for your sampler!

Suitable for complete beginners as well as those wishing to brush up on existing skills.
