Online Embroidery Workshop/ November 23


Date: November 23 rd 
Time: 19h – 21:00h (UTC Lisbon time)

Let’s get together behind our screens again!

Learn the basics of hand embroidery and create illustrative stitches you can adapt onto clothing.

Online Hand Embroidery Workshop

This is a 2 hours session where you will learn the whole process from designing to choosing the correct fabric, transferring the design to the fabric and embroidering it, and securing the ends for a durable product.

We will practice the most common stitches and create a sampler that will be a reference for you both in the workshop and your future projects.

Finally, you’ll create a unique piece that can be used as hoop art, a patch, a brooch, or framed as a picture on your wall. You’ll leave with a beautiful embroidered item to refer back to later.

You are welcome to bring your own ideas and designs to work on with Uma’s help. If you don’t have anything in mind, just show up; we will create collective stitchy magic!

What do you need to join?

  • Embroidery floss (DMC or Anchor are ideal) 1 or more colors, normal sewing thread works too
