PART 1 - Embroidery with Elisalex

DATE, TIME AND LOCATION

Sunday 3rd December, 11am - 2pm, 4 Broadway Market Mews, London, E8 4TS. 

PROJECT

In this three hour workshop we'll be learning the foundations of hand embroidery and applying our new skills to embellish and/or mend a garment from your very own wardrobe, with a Christmassy twist! We'll be covering all the basic stitches you'll need to get you going, as well as providing you with all the materials you'll need (and some fuel in the form of tea and mince pies of course!).
Embroidery has forever been used to mend and embellish old or torn garments in order to breathe new life and put off having to discard loved items prematurely. It's that functional beauty of visible mending that gives me such a deep sense of satisfaction, and I firmly believe that once you've used embroidery to mend one favourite pair of ripped jeans, no item in your wardrobe will be safe...!
