Creative Embroidery (Victoria Frausin) 4 weeks on Saturday afternoons 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. Sats 16 Sep, 30 Sep, 7 Oct, 21 Oct.
The course will offer different options to make your old garments beautiful again. Begin learning basic stitches and progress onto more complex ones. Images can be transferred from paper to fabric and old garments will be embroidered and become loved again. Giving a second chance to the clothes that are already in our wardrobe is a very important step in sustainable fashion.
