Basic Couching Embroidery Workshop with Lora Avedian
August 19th 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm£35
In this workshop you will learn a traditional hand embroidery technique called couching, which is a technique Lora showcases in her book Stitch in Bloom. You will learn the basics of the techniques and how using different materials can change the outcome of your embroidery. This is an experimental technique which we hope will enable you to play with materials and learn about the versatility of the stitch.
You can purchase a workshop materials kit here for an extra cost please add this to your cart before checking out.
This can only be sent to students who buy tickets over 10 days in advance of their workshop and depends on where you are in the world, please contact us if you are concerned about this being delivered on time.

A square of calico (roughly 20x30cm)
1 x embroidery needle
A couple of lengths of embroidery thread/floss
A variety of small strips of materials to use in the workshop such as braid, ribbon, wool yarn, and fabric strips
