Create a celebration of bugs, butterflies and bumblebees!
Trish will teach you this very fresh and delicate technique, using micron pens, opalescent paints and embroidery. No drawing skills required!

– £39 for this full day workshop, payable in advance
– Free refreshments provided, but bring or buy your own lunch
– Please check the list below to find out what you will need to bring with you
– A materials kit will be available to buy from the tutor on the day for £7.50, see below for details


Equipment & Materials

A kit will be provided at a cost of £7.50 containing all materials required, but students need to bring the following:
– An 8”/20cm wooden hoop frame with the inner ring bound with opened out bias binding or strips of sheeting
– Basic sewing kit including embroidery scissors, pins, sewing/embroidery/beading needles, tape measure and thimble if used etc.
– A small, fine paintbrush (like those used by model makers)
– A protective cover for your work. (a plastic shower cap is ideal)
– A lightbox, but only if you have one to hand
– A black waterproof pen with a nib of 0.25/size 01 (Sakura Micron Pigma). Please note that this is included in the kit price, but if you have one already, we can adjust the kit price accordingly. But we buy them in bulk and can get a better deal than you can buy them individually
– Seasoned stitchers may wish to bring a selection of their favourite threads including stranded cottons, silks, metallics and fine Perles.
Your kit will include a 12×12 piece of Egyptian cotton and backing fabric, and use of paints, watercolour pencils and a selection of threads and stickles for £7.50 (or £4.75 if you already have a micron pen).

To book, please call 01373 323280 or email info@braintreecommunitycentre.org.uk. We are able to take payment by card over the phone.

Online booking and payment coming soon!

Information for Students

Some parking is available to the rear of the Centre. If you have equipment to bring in, you can access the building directly into the main hall through the doors in the car park. If the doors aren’t open, please inform the office you have arrived and the doors will be opened for you.

If you think you may have access difficulties please let us know in advance, as we have accessible facilities available. Accessible toilets are available on the ground floor. Wheelchair access is through the door on the front of the Centre.

Free tea & coffee will be provided. Don’t forget to bring your lunch or you can choose to visit one of the many cafes and takeaways in town.

Please wear suitable clothing, and if you’re bringing any electrical equipment please ensure that it is in good working order with a solid plug and undamaged wiring – check it before you come!


Class fees should be paid in advance by card (which can be done over the phone- 01376 323280).

We will also accept cheques, which will be cashed two weeks before the date of the class once we are sure the class will run, and should be made payable to Braintree & Bocking Community Association.

There may be an additional cost for appropriate materials, which if applicable, should be paid to the tutor on the day of the class – please check the class details.

Cancellation policy

Fees are non-refundable from two weeks before the class unless we can sell the space to another student (subject to a minimum of six students booked). Fees may be transferable at our discretion.

Please understand that the Centre cannot afford to run classes at a loss, since we are a charity. As such, classes may be cancelled if we are unable to achieve a minimum number of students. If this is the case, you will be informed two weeks before the date of the class and your fee will be refunded.
