Embroidered drawstring bag workshop
Sunday 17 november
10am - 4pm
In this unique and one off workshop created by Kasia Jacquot exclusively for The Happen Store you will create a beautiful hand embroidered drawstring bag using a mix of wool and cotton threads on a high quality linen panel. Kasia will guide you gently around the design stitch by stitch ensuring that everyone feels relaxed and confident. This workshop is great for stitchers of any level as Kasia attends to each student individually throughout the workshop. You will learn a number of different stitches and explore the contrasting textures created by both wool and cotton. Once the stitching is finished this project sews into a drawstring bag and you will be given full instructions for completing the work. The drawstring bags are a great way to store your craft projects.
Students will have a choice of colours on the day and all materials are provided. All you need to do is bring your own lunch!
Kasia is an experienced, patient and inspiring teacher who encourages her students to let go of perfection and embrace the organic nature of their creative hands and hearts.
