Christmas Hoops Workshop with Jessica Grady
Christmas Embroidery Hoop Workshop
In this mixed media stitch workshop with embroidery artist Jessica Grady you will create your own Christmas inspired textile art piece which will be finished in an embroidery hoop ready for you to hang on your Christmas tree.
Jessica will show you techniques including creating 3D sequins and beads to create your own sparkly snowflakes or colourful bauble designs. Your embellished fabric will be enhanced with hand embroidery and finished with a ribbon hoop for hanging! This is a class is suited to beginners and those wanting to have a go at something new - no previous embroidery experience is necessary.
All materials are included in the ticket price, all you have to bring along is yourself and a willingness to be creative!
