Embroidery and Fibre Arts for Beginners | Thu 15 Jun – Thu 6 Jul | 1-3pm | £80 (4 wks) | 16+ yrs | Tutor Lana Grindley | Studio 3

Embroidery and Fibre Arts for Beginners is an 4-week course delivered by Kendal-based Fibre & Textile Artist, Lana Grindley, who will introduce participants to embroidery, needle felting, 3D embroidery, and painting with fibres. The aim of this course is to master the basics of embroidery and work with fibre to create wonderful pieces of art.

What will the class cover and how will it be taught?

The class will explore basic mark-making with embroidery thread, and an introduction to simple embroidering techniques. Participants will then learn what felting is, and how to use it in producing fibre arts. Incorporating the first two techniques, skills will be developed further to create 3D fibre art, before finally introducing paint and embroidery. Following the successful completion of each skill, participants will decide which techniques they enjoyed the most and want to use in creating a final piece suitable for their home.

Who is it suitable for?

This course is suitable for anybody interested in Embroidery and Fibre Arts and is specially tailored for beginners.
