Botanical Embroidery Creative Workshop with Lucy Freeman at The Biscuit Factory Newcastle.

Botanical Embroidery with Lucy Freeman


Time: 12.30 - 4.30pm

Age: Suitable for ages 14+

About: Lucy will teach you contemporary embroidery techniques used specifically for hoop art - an easy to learn, quick and experimental way to embroider.

We'll cover the whole process from designing, stitching and how to finish hoops neatly to be hung on the wall. Expect lots of gorgeous botanical and floral imagery to draw from and plenty of finished embroidery pieces to look through for inspiration.

This workshop will offer extra time and space for Lucy to help you individually, whether you're a complete beginner or have had sewing experience before, she will be on hand to advise and leave you confident to embroider independently at home.

Ticket includes all the materials: fabric, threads, design stencils, an embroidery hoop and needle, as well as instructional sheets and access to video tutorials so you can continue to learn more after the workshop. You get to keep all the materials so that you can keep embroidering at home afterwards!
