About The Workshop…

A great collage, stitch and embroidery workshop with the very talented Anne Brooke, this time we are making lovely canvases with a choice of native British animal, we will stretch to an owl if you like as a further option.
There will be lots of demo’s by Anne to help you assemble your furry collage followed by lots of advice on free machine embroidery and hand sewing techniques to bring your piece together

Working from a photograph of your chosen animal (Anne will have examples for you) make a template to work from then using papers with a variety of textures, patterns, colours and tones;  tear and cut the papers ready to collage them together to form the base of your animal. Then your collage will be brought together with machine stitching, and character can be added with embroidered finishing touches and maybe a few beads or buttons.

Skill Level.  Suitable for all levels of experience.

If using a machine you need to be competent with your sewing machine (free machine embroidery technique), or you can hand stitch your design.
