PAINTING WITH YOUR NEEDLEby 159
Caroline Zoob first took up a needle in her late 30s, and is entirely self-taught. So she takes particular pleasure in welcoming all levels of embroiderers to her workshops in the knowledge that beginners will go home very surprised by what they have achieved in a day, and more advanced participants will enjoy throwing the rule book out of the window and working in a new way, using incredibly simple stitches in a painterly fashion.
Whether you want to try a run of wildflowers on a roadside verge, or some sheep grazing in a meadow, or a scene from your allotment, Caroline will show you the stitches and how to pick up your needle and use it as though it were a brush loaded with paint, without worrying about whether you are ‘doing it right’.This workshop will be held in a beautiful private home in Bramley, Surrey where you will work in a comfortable, light-filled garden room.
The workshop fee of £170 includes all materials, morning coffee on arrival, a light two-course lunch and afternoon tea at the end of the day. When you book you will be sent details of how to get to the venue, as well as a short list of useful equipment to bring.
Saturday 4 April 2017, 10.15 - 4.30, £170 per person including materials, food and refreshments throughout the day.
