|Course:||An Introduction to Free Machine Emboidery|
|Start Date:||3rd March 2018|
|Fee:||£54.00 What's included?|
This day course presents opportunities to develop individual creativity through experimentation, using the technique of Free-machine Embroidery. Discover this liberating technique, using the sewing machine, whereby the needle is free to draw as if on paper. Students will be shown ways to develop and extend their stitch vocabulary and explore line, texture, and pattern. The tutor will introduce a wide range of threads suitable for this technique. There will be demonstrations followed by the chance to experiment and develop personal skills through sample making. Students may bring a photograph or an image of their choice as a source of inspiration, but this is optional. The tutor will show a wealth of examples and samples of her own work to inspire the student and demonstrate the technique. The technique explored lends itself to many applications – quilts, embroidered ‘pictures’, wall hangings, clothing, accessories, and soft furnishings. The course is aimed at those with competent sewing machine skills who have practical experience of using their own machine, which you will need to bring with you.
