Join us for a morning of embroidery and craft in our studio in the creative warehouse The Space Sydney. In this beginners workshop we will be focusing on the versatile chain stitch and demonstrating variations that will add pattern and dimension to your embroidery work. No experience is necessary!
Chain stitch is great if you’re just starting to learn embroidery as it’s wonderfully adaptable. It can be used as linework to add custom lettering to your Ts and denim jackets or as a filled texture for more built up designs. We love adding it as a textured stitch to our Sweater Letters for a knitted look.
During the 2 hour workshop we will demonstrate the basic stitch and show you whipped variations and experiment with using cotton thread, perle cotton and yarn for different effects. Once you get a hang of it you have your very own Maricor/Maricar Cheer Squad banner to stitch up which comes pre-cut and with dowel and string ready to hang when you get home.
We have templated designs for the phrases “You gotta keep cheering!”, “Don’t stop cheering!” or you are welcome to come with your own design we can help translate in an embroidery template for the banner.
Banner is approximately 26cm x 36.5cm
Tea and light snacks will be provided during the workshop.
