Description

What you'll learn

Appliqué sounds like a fancy word, but all it really means is sewing a smaller piece of fabric onto a larger one! (Now maybe I've made it sound too simple...) Once you know how to do it effectively you can create amazing designs on anything, I promise you'll use it time and time again! We'll show you the classic way of sewing your appliques on with zig-zag stitch, as well as reverse applique and how to do free machine embroidery. This is a fantastic way of sewing, you can literally draw with the sewing machine.

You can make a sampler to practice all the different techniques, great for students who want to try something new and add into their portfolio, or if you want to make something out of your picture we've got stuffing and everything you need to make it into a beautiful cushion.


Who is this workshop for?

Complete beginners are welcome. We would encourage a more simple design if you've never sewn before but you'll still have lots of fun. If you are an experienced stitcher we've got a few tricks up our sleeve to challenge you and you will be able to learn lots of decorative techniques in the 2 hours. Suitable for adults and children (age 6+).


Materials + Equipment

We have a selection of fabrics and trims in the studio which you can purchase for a donation towards our tea and cake fund. If you would like to bring your own fabric you just make sure it is big enough for 2 sides of your cushion. A mediumweight woven is ideal, this workshop will NOT work in stretch fabric. Feel free to get in touch before the class to discuss fabric choices.

If you would like to practice sewing on your own machine please feel free to bring it along.
