Embroidery is the ability to paint with thread. It’s less messy and you can do it on a plane so win win right?

The best way to practice mindful, reflective and colourful craft! – Beginner stitching at its best.

What will I learn?

Buckle in you are in for a treat!

In this group workshop we will go through the basics of embroidery.

You will create your design on paper, or you choose from our extensive selection. Transfer onto fabric, set this into an embroidery hoop then get stitching!

What you learn now, will be good footing for your mending practice too!

We got you covered

We use 100% cotton calico in natural or white or choose from our ‘scrap bin’ for a colourful fabric!

Embroidery floss is Anchor 100% cotton and you will take home your 5″ embroidery hoop.

You will also take home your needle and a few skeins of floss so you can finish your piece at home.

This style of stitching is slow and relaxing. So while you get lost in the repetitive motion of stitching, you will be able to get to know your fellow classmates, your new forever mates.

All materials and equipment is included in the cost of this workshop.

I’m not much of a crafter, but my mates dragged me along to a craft evening for my baby shower. It was a therapeutic and lovely bonding experience that I’d recommend to anyone!
