Textile Collage & Embroidery – Garden Bird (inc Materials/p&p)
This course has now closed for bookings to allow time for the material packs to be delivered.

Hand stitch a favourite garden bird using a mixture of fabrics and threads. Before the start of this workshop you will be given a chance to choose a bird from the following: robin, blackbird, sparrow, pigeon, wren and tit. Using a supplied template to help you get started, you will cut fabrics of appropriate colour and texture into small pieces and sew them into your bird outline. You will use expressive stitches, long and short, close and spaced to convey the character of the bird. French knots could also be included. Your completed image could be bordered with a pattern if time allows.

This workshop is open to all but it would be an advantage to have some experience of simple hand stitching. Once the initial explanation is over, you are free to work at your own pace and take breaks when you want. You can join in with as much or as little of the conversation as you want. Prosp User 4
You will receive a pack of materials appropriate to your chosen bird before the workshop. It will contain background fabric, a bird template, a selection of various fabrics and some embroidery thread. You will also need on the day, a pencil, some scissors, pins, needles and some ordinary sewing thread in brown or grey. You may also need some extra embroidery thread in case not enough is supplied.
