Festive Hand Embroidery with Leah Halliday
Tickets £12 | Duration 1hr. Celebrate the festive season and take some time out from the show to relax, recharge and enjoy a fun hour learning to make this simple project. Using a needle, thread and an embroidery hoop you’ll learn how to hand sew a snowflake decoration. Designed with simplicity in mind and using a few stitches such as Back Stitch, French Knot, Fly Stitch and Chain Stitch, Leah will give you an excellent introduction to embroidery and teach you the basics during the class. At the end of the session you’ll have the beginnings of a beautiful snowflake design, a hoop, threads and detailed diagrams of the stitches covered, to refer back to when you get home. Once complete, you can proudly hang your handmade decoration to be enjoyed year after year at Christmas time.
