The art of embroidery
This beautiful course will help you take one of your child's drawings or a drawing of your child's handprint and using embroidery and scraps of your favourite children's clothes turn it into a special personalised cushion to treasure forever.
You will learn a variety of simple embroidery stitches and how to put the project together.
A unique family treasure
Our tutor will show you how to copy the drawing onto cloth and how to appliqué fabrics and draw with simple embroidery stitches. We will supply the base fabric, some fabric scraps and will also have some alternative designs if you would prefer to work with them.
During the final session we will create a cushion from your embroidered picture.
Time for you
This course is about you. You'll be learning a new skill that encourages mindfulness, creativity and is noted by generations for the sense of wellbeing and calm it evokes.
We're here to support you.
The class will be small and in addition to your tutor there will be a minimum of two play workers to entertain, hold, cuddle and focus their whole attention on your children. Our moto is support not separation.
All your fellow students will have their children with them. Our play workers are experienced with brand new babies, to school aged children. Each class is planned and planned to provide different themes and activities each week to compliment the ages of the children attending.
