Workshops are a perfect way to learn a specific craft or skill and all abilities are welcome.

If you don't see anything here that takes your fancy at the moment, please stay tuned - this list is updated regularly so something you might be interested in could appear at any time.

Workshops are held at Hilary Jane's workroom in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex or at the Create98 Art Studio (also in Leigh-on-Sea) or other venues by arrangement. I will also continue to run live Zoom workshops.

During the workshop you will make a pretty summer dress picture using appliqué and a variety of embroidery stitches. Appliqué is a technique that layers shapes of fabric onto a fabric background secured in place using small stitches. The picture is embellished with embroidery stitches. These stitches can be practiced before adding them to your picture. The finished piece can be made into a picture and/or added to a small wall hanging/quilt.

 

Fee: £30  Tea, coffee, home made cake, all materials and instructions included.

A reflective project marrying fabric, thread and various embroidery stitches to make a small wall hanging or picture.

I love using soft calico and fine cotton fabrics.  In this project you will work with natural calico, tea dyed calico and linen fabrics .  The threads I have chosen compliment the fabrics.

During the workshop we will cover mixing threads and fabrics to create an effect.

All embroidery stitches used in the design  will be demonstrated and you may wish to create a stitch sample to practice before adding them to the wall hanging or picture.

Fee: £30  Tea, coffee, home made cake, all materials and instructions included.
