The London Embroidery Studio
Studio 11, 8 Andrew's Road, E8 4QN London, United Kingdom
Freehand machine embroidery is a fast, accessible and fun way to create exciting embroideries at home or at work without having to invest in expensive embroidery equipment. This day-long workshop will start you off with the basics of freehand machine embroidery on domestic sewing machines before moving on to more complicated and decorative processes. Depending on the day, the workshop is lead by either Managing Director, Andrew Kenny or embroiderer, Ellie Sweeney and takes inspiration from their personal research.
You can bring in your own design, choose from some that we have in stock or just freestyle it! You’ll be introduced to professional equipment used in high-end and couture fashion such as the Irish machine but also be shown techniques that you can use at home. You’ll learn processes such as appliqué, decoupé, sheering elastic and machine embroidery lace and the skills to interpret these skills creatively.
Held at our working studio, in the heart of London’s fashionable East-End, all classes are led by experienced tutors with industry backgrounds.
The class runs fro 10am to 4:30pm, with lunch from 1-2pm when you can experience the culinary delights available from nearby Broadway Market. Refreshments during the day and all materials are included. There is a maximum of six people in this class to ensure a quality learning experience.
This class is suitable for beginners and those with some experience. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
