What will we do

We will make a commemorative memory maps to celebrate memories of that special place where you grew up or travelled to on holidays. Taking inspiration from objects, photographs, maps we will create visual compositions to translate into stitched patterns and textures. This course is suitable for those of you who wish to develop your creative skills further.

The first day will be about developing a visual through mark making, drawing and playing with scale. The second day would begin with demonstrations of embroidery techniques. Each student will get individual feedback on how to translate their artwork into embroidery and finish the piece. You will then continue to make your individual memory maps.

Here’s what our happy students say

“I thoroughly enjoyed the course with Ekta, renewing my interest in sewing, yet doing something I had never done before ie machine embroidery. I decided to come to Ekta’s workshop because I so liked what she made for the Christmas Fair and I wanted to learn her techniques. I am close to retirement and am looking to spend time doing something creative, making items that are unique, attractive and useful and can be given as presents. I am so inspired I am now bidding on e-bay for a Bernina sewing machine!”
