Ekta will share techniques and tips she uses within her own work. The small group size means you will get lots of one-on-one help. You will be able to view Ekta’s works in progress

What you need to bring

All materials, use of tools and equipment is 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 me the image of the map and I will be happy to print it for you.

“What a wonderful experience- to share stories of place and belonging while learning from Ekta. It was a fantastic day! Your work is inspirational.”

Susy Stirling, Sheffield

“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.”
