About the event
An exciting introduction to drawing with your sewing machine using free machine embroidery. You’ll create a series of wonderful linear compositions and have the confidence to continue creating.
I'm delighted to be teaching at Janome HQ again after a long break: we will be based in Janome's purpose built training facility, full of machines - so you don't need to worry about a thing, just turn up and enjoy your day :-)
You'll learn how to adapt you machine to act like your pencil, to use threads as varying weights of graphite. We will be looking at illustrating different scenes from holiday destinations, so you can expect to create a series of samples and a couple of finished, stitched illustrations, which you may wish to mount and frame as a momento of your workshop. We’ll work on calico and let the thread take centre stage.
This workshop is intended for beginners and those who wish to build their confidence before moving onto Drawing and Painting with Free Machine Embroidery
10am - 4pm
All machines, materials/threads, refreshments, buffet lunch and home made cake are included
As a tutor I have 34 years experience, I teach and exhibit all over the world. I will help you start your journey into machine embroidery…I’ll give you the techniques and tips you need to get started and then the confidence to follow your own path.
