We’re really excited to be welcoming textile artist Isobel Moore to our team of tutors at Dot to Dot Studio.
In this weekly workshop you will learn how to use machine embroidery to create vibrant, colourful and textured embroidery art.
Isobel’s classes are a brilliant way of using up (even tiny) little scraps of fabric that you may have left over from bigger projects.
You can pay for your classes in blocks of 3,6,9 or 12 weeks and they can be used at any of our popular classes.
Space is limited to 6 students on this regular weekly class, so book early to avoid disappointment!
To book your space at our first ever Textile Art and Machine Embroidery Class on 16th October 2019, please either contact us, or book your first 3 Classes below!
Please be aware of our cancellation policy before making a booking.
You can check out more from Isobel on her website: www.isobelmoore.co.uk
This class is suitable for ALL skill levels – including complete beginners.
Machine embroidery is all about using the sewing machine in a creative way, so the aim is to help you develop your confidence and skill with using a sewing machine, to enable you to create the effects that you want, to create your own unique decorative articles or pieces of art.
You may have a specific article that you want to make, or you may want to get to grips with some of the materials often used in machine embroidery, such as water soluble fabric.
Isobel will demonstrate a new embroidery technique each week, and if you wish you can follow along and create your own reference collection of samples. This can be useful if you are stuck for ideas, or want to practise techniques before embarking on a project.
There will be plenty of inspiration from Isobel’s own work, and also books and magazines. Students are encouraged to keep a sketchbook or scrapbook their own ideas and notes.
To start with, for the weekly class students will need:
Medium weight calico
Stitch’n’tear (not iron-on Vilene)
Lightweight fabric pieces and scraps in various colours
All-purpose machine threads, and machine embroidery threads if you have them already
