A Little Book of Leaves

Calling all beginners and experienced embroiderers. We are offering a day course for all those looking to return to hand stitching.

  • Booking essential

A gentle 'stitching' day aimed at the beginner or an experienced embroiderer who wants to return to hand stitch.

Working with natural cloth we will create sample pieces working through a series of techniques that will translate the quality of leaves. These can be created into pages of a book or give inspiration for further exploration at home.

This will be an all day course costing £65 to include all materials and lunch.
