Hi! My name is Lizzie and I am a secondary art and design teacher. I studied Surface Pattern for Fashion at university and from that had lots of experience working in print studios for the fashion industry, including the womenswear department at Marks and Spencers.
I have been doing hand embroidery for 5 years. I find that it is very mindful and I get great pleasure from watching my designs grow. I get asked to do a variety of commissions, which I love, as I get to do things that I wouldn't normally do. Recently, I have been embroidering dogs & wedding bow ties.
Last year, I created a stitch swap. I reached out to people on Instagram to take part in this with me. This was great fun and super inspiring to work with other embroidery creatives.
I have such a big passion for being creative and I can’t wait to teach you a new skill!
Follow my Instagram to see what I have been up to & share the love!
I will be hosting this workshop from my spare bedroom, which have over taken with my arts and crafts!
If you would like to request for alternative dates not currently showing in availability, please contact the host directly via private message
Prior to the experience, I will send out a kit that includes the basics of what you will need to create your hand embroidery stitch sampler. Not included in the kit are scissors - so please have a pair to hand.
I will also require your address for me to send you the kit. You can email me this, once your booking and payment has gone through.
Please note - this kit will be sent 5-6 days prior to the event - all bookings, payments & kits will be non refundable at this point.
