The workshop is for one day and revolves around line and mark-making with stitch in order to master freehand machine embroidery and develop your own creative practise. Three key areas that we will cover during the day are APPLIQUE, COUCHING and FREEHAND MACHINE EMBROIDERY. During the day, you will work through a series of tasks that will help you to explore the different ways you can work with freehand on your sewing machine and make the most of this technical skill. By the end of the day you will have a series of stitched samples that you can take away with you as a visual record and reminder of what you’ve been learning throughout the session.
