Learn the basics of hand embroidery and start creating your own festive embroidery wreath with Sammy Bishop of Paraffle Embroidery.

This workshop is a great for beginners looking to be guided through essential embroidery techniques, or those looking for a refresher on their skills, whilst getting in the festive spirit.

Taught in a small, informal group using a Paraffle design as a template, Sammy will show you all you need to know to complete a piece of embroidery art to hang in your own home.

You will also be given all the equipment you need to continue your project at home!

All materials will be provided. Workshop suitable for 16+, unless accompanied by an adult also attending the workshop.
