Everyone knows about selfies. We try to get them anywhere and everywhere with whomever we can. They have become such a massive part of our culture that The Royal Family have had to place a ban on them being in anyone else’s selfie. But we LOVE them!
This course is a great way to try a traditional activity in a modern way. You do not have to be able to draw to be successful at this class. We will show you how to transfer your photo onto fabric and then demonstrate a range of stitching techniques that you can use to complete your own embroidered selfie. You will leave with the knowledge and resources to complete your own portrait having practised your skills with the guidance of your tutor.
Maximum 8 participants per workshop. All materials are provided.
The workshop is held at the Peak District Yarns Studio and Workshop, Commercial Road, Tideswell, SK17 8N. If you are attending a full-day workshop, it will run from 10am to 4pm. Lunch is not provided, but you are welcome to bring a packed lunch, or you can pop to one of the local cafes. If you are attending a series of evening workshop, they run from 7pm to 9pm.
