Shed 76 & 1/2 is pleased to welcome Ali Ferguson back in 2020 for a 2 day workshop on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th August in Brighouse HD6 3EL
A gorgeous 2 days of hand stitching with a difference creating an ‘embroidered sampler’ from ‘patches’ of wood. You will create a sampler embellished with your own small treasures all hand stitched into place. These will then be stitched together to create your unique wall piece. By the end of the 2 days you will feel as at home using the drill as you do your needle and thread.The wood for your patches will be provided and Ali will bring along a lovely selection of vintage haberdashery & sewing box treasures from her studio, The Purple Thread Shed.
However to make your sampler really personal do bring along your own small treasures & collections.You could make a sampler based on your favourite book or story with a collection of related bits & pieces, or a sampler based around your family or memories of childhood. Bits and pieces that you have gathered from nature make a beautiful collection – think about including some text from a nature book or similar. Think about old books (if you can bear to cut them up) and other printed pages – old magazine advertisements, postcards, letters and maps. Any other kind of paper ephemera is great such as old playing cards, tickets etc. Photos could be incorporated too. Have fun thinking and gathering – it’s a gorgeous opportunity to display some of these really meaningful objects that tend to lie unused at the bottom of drawers.There are a few messy bits so please bring an apron or at the very least don’t wear your Sunday Best!
Please bring your lunch, Tea and coffee will be provided throughout the day.
