Gather memories of special journeys, literal or metaphorical, external or internal, recent or past ones and learn to embroider them into a beautiful keepsake that recounts your journey. The course theme is deliberately loose so as to encourage interpretation in widest possible ways. For inspiration please bring objects and/or images that evoke your journey and inspire you. These could include, though not limited to photographs, maps, books, souvenirs.

Ekta will demonstrate embroidery techniques to interpret your journey. You will learn to transfer imagery on to fabric, choose a colour palette and embroider your journey.

Here’s what Ekta’s happy students say

“Spending the afternoon designing a bespoke map with Ekta was the highlight of my trip to London! Her creativity, patience and compassion helping me document a journey I’ve been on are unrivalled. Starting with the unique venue… her studio at Cockpit Yards which is buzzing with creativity one couldn’t help but be inspired. Ekta listened to my story and using her artistic skills was able to capture the essence of my journey. She also makes beautiful and oh such creative scarves! I walked away with 2 Beautiful keepsakes…. the scarf which when I wear I will remember this great experience and a very personal bespoke map which I will cherish. I highly recommend this course. I’ll be back for sure!”
