Couching Continued Online Workshop - 2021 Dates


This is a ticket for a two hour online hand embroidery workshop, which is an extension to the first Couching workshop I have run, although you do not need to have done this previous workshop to join. Just a good grasp of basic embroidery stitches.

The class will take place on Zoom (this is something you must have access to in order to do the workshop).

Information on how to download this and what you will need for the workshop will be sent via email a few weeks prior to the class.

Dates of this workshop:

SATURDAY 23rd JANUARY 2021, 16:00-18:00 UK time


SATURDAY 20th FEBRUARY 2021, 16:00-18:00 UK time

What will you learn?
In this workshop you will learn how to create a botanical design using a variety of materials with the traditional hand embroidery technique of couching. You will learn how to translate your design into stitch using your own materials you have bought or found at home. Lora will guide you through her process from designing to making a final embroidery. She will teach you how you can use the couching techniques learnt in the beginners class to create a variety of flowers and leaves which you can then use to make your embroidery with.

The outcome of the workshops will be samples of each flower technique, and the beginnings of an embroidery which you can then continue to work on at your on pace or use as a reference for further projects.

What you will need to do this class:
- A piece of medium weight fabric to work on (roughly 20x30cm, could be wool, linen, or cotton)
- Embroidery/hand sewing needles (in a few different sizes if possible)
- Your choice of materials to use in the workshop such as braid, ribbon, wool yarn, and fabric strips.
