What will we do

The day is designed for slowing down, enhancing wellbeing through hand stitching, a quiet and calming craft and enjoying creative conversations with like minded people. We will begin the day with a demonstration of embroidery stitches and learning about Ekta’s creative process. You will then learn to embroider a custom map of a place that is special to you. Working with a map of your choice, you will learn to develop a drawing of the map, transfer your drawing on to fabric, use a variety of embroidery stitches & leave with skills and confidence to complete a beautiful piece of art that you can frame. The small group size means you will get lots of one-on-one feedback.

What you need to bring

All materials, use of tools and equipment are included. The only thing you need to bring along is a printout of your map. If you don’t have access to a printer simply email us the image of the map and we will be happy to print it for you.

“I so enjoyed the course – it was really well structured and delivered in a way that was supportive, encouraged confidence and crucially – was hugely inspiring. I went home, my head buzzing with ideas and have already managed to carve out some time to do some embroidery. You are a very talented artist and a great communicator. Thank you.”
