HAND EMBROIDERY ONE-DAY COURSE
Embroider a custom map of a place that is special to you with award winning textile artist Ekta Kaul. Working with a map of your choice, you will learn to develop a drawing of the map, transfer your drawing on to fabric, use a variety of embroidery stitches & leave with a beautiful piece of art that you can frame. The small group size means you will get lots of one-on-one help and top tips. Some fabrics and threads will be included. Please bring your own threads, special fabrics to add a personal touch to your map.
Ekta creates bespoke Story Maps based on personal narratives and a small number of wearables. Her textiles are imbued with character, they speak of exceptional hand craftsmanship, careful attention to detail and a sensitive use of materials & colours.
