This is a day for those of you who would like to acquire or refresh some embroidery skills. Perhaps you want to move beyond cross stitch, perhaps you want to remind yourself of skills learnt in the past, or perhaps you simply want to have an enjoyable day learning something new at “The Arts and Crafts Church”.
This day offers an introduction to surface stitching on linen fabric using crewel wools. By the end of the day you will have learnt enough to be able to finish your kit at home. The course will take place in one of the meeting rooms in the historic setting of Long Street Methodist Church (see www.artsandcraftschurch.org).
The course price is £45 + booking fee and for that you will receive five hours tuition, a kit with all necessary materials and instructions, tea/coffee etc. You can borrow embroidery frames and scissors on the day at no charge. For lunch you can bring your own or buy something at Ye Olde Boar’s Head PH, the oldest pub in the North-West, just next door.
The day will be lead by Helen Jones, an accredited tutor with the Royal School of Needlework – see http://www.royal-needlework.org.uk/courses/tutor_details/69
