Embroider your Favourite Feminist Quote or Image
|Hosted by Moody Bright Designs|
|All materials and guidance|
Subversive stitching isn’t a new concept, but it never gets old! And what better way is there to practice embroidering text than to go into the world of great words?
We’ll be providing some positive quotes as samples, but you’re more than welcome to bring in your own favourite quote or text, as long as it’s not discriminating on anyone and it follows a mindful and kind approach towards other people’s beliefs.
If you came to any of our previous classes you could start from scratch or continue on your own ongoing project, provided it focuses on text. Students will be encouraged to think of how they’d like their final work to look like. We’ll be looking at different fonts and different options to frame your embroidered text ( in a hoop? On a pillow? On a handkerchief? etc.) and you’ll still get a chance to learn some cool basic stitches for outlines and simple flowers.
This class is good both for people who like to free hand draw, or transfer.
Expect teas, chats and a friendly and positive atmosphere.
Standard size hoops will be for sale for £2 for you to take home. If you have a project in mind that requires a bigger or smaller hoop it’s ok, but you might have to bring this to the class.
There will be threads available for use and practice, if you want very specific colours and don’t want to be disappointed, bring those to class too.
Scraps of fabric to practice will be provided, and so will be the needles.
