A cosy and tactile 4 hour workshop where you will learn to work with wool applying simple stitches onto linen. Kasia walks you through the details of how to use wool for embroidery and how to create beautiful, soft textures. This is a relaxing workshop using only one colour of wool leaving you to focus on stitches, textures and technique. We’ll be following a pattern which can later be made into a beautiful drawstring pouch. Pattern may vary slightly from image shown. Materials provided: panel of raw Russian linen, artisan wool, needle, pattern, instructions, photo of finished piece.
