Another great day was had with Maggie; next time we’ll be doing some hand embroidery in the Butterfly workshop on the 14th July.
At the Confetti workshop we made these bright and beautiful pieces combining machine embroidery with a bit of imagination!
Coming up next is “Spider’s Web” on 23rd June.
Yesterday marked the beginning of this year’s Braintree Summer School, with Maggie Harling’s Leaves: Machine Embroidery workshop. Here you can see some of the fantastic work created by the students!
Following the success of the first Machine Embroidery class back in March, Maggie Harling will be returning to deliver a whole series of classes as part of the Braintree Summer School!
There will be six Machine Embroidery workshops over the summer, covering various techniques and providing plenty of opportunity for experimentation.
All of the classes will be suitable for any ability level and as standalone classes you can attend as many or as few as you like, and in any combination – however, we will be offering discounts and useful free gifts depending on how many you book!
Our latest Saturday School class, “Starting Machine Embroidery from the Beginning”, is now only a few days away – don’t miss out on a great day!
Maggie Harling will teach you a variety of experimental and creative ways to embroider using your sewing machine. All the new techniques you learn can be used to enhance your own projects.
