Learn how to use your sewing machine as a drawing machine and create a beautiful wintery bird portrait. Inspired by the birds we see around at winter time we’ll create unique textile art works with applique and free motion embroidery. We’ll learn how to transfer a design onto fabric, how to add different colours and textures with other fabrics and how to ‘draw’ with our sewing machines. No experience necessary and templates are provided but feel free to bring your own image if you’d like to.

Kit and Requirements

I will provide all materials needed but if you would like to bring your own materials we will be using:

Plain fabric (a midweight linen or cotton is ideal)
Fabric Pastels
Embroidery threads
Basic sewing kit
Embroidery hoop


Please note that there is an additional cost of £3 per person for materials.
