Embroidery for All

This is a series of 6 sessions designed for hand stitchers at any stage in their embroidery journey.  I haven’t put a ‘level of experience’ with this course as it is open to anyone.

Come along if you

  • Are a complete beginner
  • Want to build on what you already know
  • Feel stuck on a project
  • Have an idea for something new
  • Want inspiration

There will be six days, one a month on the third Wednesday of the month from 16 January to 19 June 2019.

We will meet in the Wyvern Room of the Loveless Hall in the High Street, Wivenhoe  (near Colchester) postcode CO7 9AB from 10.00am to 3.30pm.

The fee is £160.00 (10% discount for members of the Embroiderers’ Guild)

To book a place, or if you have any questions, please contact Susan by email. Places are limited so book soon!

Levels of experience

Absolute beginners:  no previous experience of embroidery is assumed.

‘Introductions’:  these workshops assume a basic confidence using needle and thread and with working a few simple stitches. They will introduce you to specific techniques or ranges of stitches or projects in which you don’t need to have any previous experience.

Extending your range:  this is where you need to already have a basic grasp of the type of embroidery, for example crewel or canvas work, and will build on your experience with new stitches, techniques or design approaches. If in any doubt about whether a workshop will suit you please do get in touch with Susan by email

I also offer private tuition in the Colchester area. Please get in touch if you would like to explore a particular embroidery technique or develop a project of your own.
