Create a hoop of blossom, using mixed media textile techniques to create a background, then embellish with some basic embroidery stitches.
As blossom season is in full swing, why not celebrated these beautiful blooms. Spend a day at Debs Studio in the Stables in The Gibside*. After a walk through the beautiful grounds of the Gibside you will hopefully feel inspired to be creative**. The workshop will cover some of the methods Deb uses to create a background for stitch. Then will explore stitching to enhance your “Blossom Hoop”.
All materials will be provided, and the workshop is suitable for all abilities. Numbers are very limited- so this is ideal if you feel you need more assistance with any of the skills involved. Because of the limited places (groups of 3-4 only) the workshop will be repeated over several dates. Dates currently available for booking Thursday 5th May and Saturday 7th May. Please contact me directly if you want to book a special group session. Booking is essential via Eventbrite search “debcoopertextileart” or “Blossom Celebration with Fabric and Stitch”.
Tea and Coffee will be provided.
