ARTSHACK EVENTS POSTPONED
Following recent government advice relating to non-essential social contact ArtShack has taken the decision to postpone all workshops from today onward until further notice. This is a very hard decision as we know that this will be difficult for many of our regular participants, but we need to prioritise the safety of our participants and artists. Therefore, all Creative Development Days (Monday and Wednesday workshops), focused workshops, dance workshops and private bookings are postponed.
- This event has passed.
Introduction to Freehand Machine Embroidery
23rd May 2019£60
In this workshop you will learn how to draw with your sewing machine. You will be shown all the basic techniques of Freehand Machine Embroidery, and will play with mark making and infilling using different stitch types. Once you feel ready, we will help you to develop an image of your choice and create a small machine embroidered piece of artwork, which can be mounted and framed to take away complete. This workshop is suitable for complete beginners or anyone wanting to develop their practice. We usually require you to bring your own sewing machine with the ability to drop the feed dog. However, if you really want to have a go before committing to buying a sewing machine, please get in touch as we can often let you use one of our own. It is also helpful if you can bring some ideas or images that you would like to work with and develop (but not essential, as we have lots of visual stimuli)
Tutors Maggie Allmark and Dr. Jack Roberts are both accomplished textile artists and have exhibited their own machine embroidered work in galleries across the country. See ‘about us’ on the website for more information or give us a call if you want to ask us any questions about the workshop!
Full day session £60
Includes all materials plus tea, coffee and cake
