Description: This workshop is perfect for someone who wants to see if smocking is for them. It is a beginners workshop and is suitable for students who already have some general sewing/embroidery skill. The freestyle nature of the technique taught means that you really can't go wrong, so why not come along and have a play? All the materials that you need to create your postcard sized sampler will be provided. If you have any precious scraps of fabric that you'd like to use bring them along together with small seed beads or sequins....they may need to go through the post! Full instructions will be given and lots of examples will be available to give you ideas. Please bring with you your basic sewing kit, including small sharp scissors and a selection of hand sewing needles. The workshop costs £25 per person and this includes all materials and refreshments. Please let us know you saw us in What's On in Dorset!
