Tutor: Pat Trott

This course aims to give students the opportunity to combine the traditional techniques of hand embroidery and beadwork and to encourage students to experiment with new techniques and develop individual ideas.

It is for beginners to embroidery or those with previous knowledge who want to learn more.  Everyone is most welcome, from the newcomer to embroidery to the converted addict. During the course students will, through demonstrations and instruction, learn a variety of embroidery stitches and how to apply beads to their embroidery. By the end of the course students will be able to go home with a fantasy underwater scene on the way to completion, having learnt a broad range of embroidery and beadwork stitches, techniques and textures. Students will also have the confidence to finish their embroidery.
