During this workshop you’ll create a stitched portrait of yourself or of someone you know, or maybe even someone famous! This will be a fun and light-hearted workshop that will introduce the basics of sewing and hand embroidery skills; including running stitch, back stitch and chain stitch to create outlines and satin stitch and long and short stitch to fill areas such as lips and eyes. As well as the use of couching, appliqué, gathering and pleating to create different textures and effects for areas such as hair and eyebrows. Once the portrait are complete you will be shown how to neatly display your finished embroidery in its hoop.
