EMBROIDERY WORKSHOP AT STORE STORE
Artist Richard McVetis teaches traditional hand embroidery techniques at STORE Store in February. Explore the slowness and rhythms of hand stitching; the versatility and strengths of embroidery for drawing and mark-making, and the simple pleasure in having time to make. No knowledge of embroidery techniques is needed.
The workshop is open to a maximum of 12 participants (age 15+) on a first come, first served basis. Attendance at the workshop costs £15 with all proceeds supporting STORE Store’s After School Club for local state school students.
All you will need for the workshop:
- Device with webcam and Zoom
- Fabric to stitch on – wool, cottons, linens nothing too tightly woven
- Sewing needles
- A range of sewing threads (doesn’t need to be hand embroidery specific)
- An embroidery hoop (#homehack if you don’t have a hoop take a small wooden picture frame, take out the glass and pin the fabric to the back)
