Learn the relaxing and creative art of hand embroidery and create a beautiful garden bird portrait. We’ll learn how to transfer a design onto fabric and how to add colour with fabric pastels. We’ll then explore how to use hand embroidery stitches to add texture, movement and character to our birds. Templates are provided but if you’d like to bring your own image to work with then please do.
