Embroidery Workshops at the Chalkpit – 13th and 20th October
13 October, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Get creative during Streatham Festival 2019 and join local Streatham artist Rosanna McNamara for two hand embroidery workshops at the Chalkpit on Streatham High Road.
With Rosanna’s guidance, you will learn how to use embroidery threads and a hoop, practice a range of stitches and create your own embroidered hanging artwork or patch to take home.
There will be a range of plain and patterned fabric to choose from and what you make is totally up to you! Perhaps you fancy creating something that celebrates the Streatham community, recreating a fun design or using a patterned fabric to guide your inspiration. You can also bring along your own fabric to embroider, but make sure it’s something non-stretchy like cotton or linen.
The workshops are open to all abilities and ages. Please note children must be accompanied by an adult as the workshops involve needles and sharp scissors.
Tickets include all materials, including an embroidery hoop that you can take home: standard tickets are £5.00 and under 16s can attend for free.
If you are working on your own textile project, or want to continue with your piece in the second workshop, then bring it along and join for free.
