10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Make a vintage-style hand-embroidery hanging inspired by vintage textiles.
Vintage embroidery is a textile art workshop that will show you ways to use Granny’s embroidered table linen, (or those lace doilies you picked up at the charity shop). You’ll create a lovely hanging to show off treasured family heirlooms or just to recreate fond memories of childhood.
We’ll create a collage, taking inspiration from the classic motifs found on tablecloths, tea trays, and other hand-embroidered items. You can also incorporate secondary inspirations such as birds, or botanicals from vintage books or other subjects that interest you, whether it’s dressmaking, recipes or family memories.
You will stitch these source materials together onto your chosen background and decorate it using simple hand embroidery stitches to create a highly-personal piece of work.
