Miniature TeaScape Embroidery
September 23, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm£35
Embroidery with a slight difference! We'll be creating miniature painted and stitched landscapes, taking teabags as our starting point.
Chris Yates is our workshop leader for this morning session. Chris is an expert in contemporary textiles and mixed media: a personable demonstrator full of ideas and enthusiasm, and somebody who can conjure beauty out of the most mundane household item!
Paint your own teabag in your chosen colour scheme, and while that’s drying we'll start to hand-embroider a mini scene on a second teabag that's been previously painted. They can either stand alone as an individual piece, or you can place a few together in a frame as a mini collection.
This workshop is equally suitable for embroidery beginners or for those who may be used to the craft and who just want to have a play at working with different materials.
We'll supply all the materials, and - of course - tea.

We do have limited space, so please do book early if there's something that particularly interests you.
Occasionally we hold 'just turn up' events... in which case just turn up! We hope to keep it as simple as that, but apologise in advance if things become unexpectedly busy and we have to rearrange.
T&Cs (The three 'C's)
Coffee. We give you coffee! (Or tea, if you prefer). For workshops that span the day, we take a break for lunch. Stretch your legs on the streets of Kibworth, or stay with us to eat and we'll prepare you something delicious for a small extra cost.
Cancellations. Please note that a full refund for cancellations will be given only if we can re-allocate your spot to another attendee.
Children. We generally give a guide age range for children's workshops, but all kids are different and you know yours better than we do! You will need to stay on the premises at all times whilst your children are here - you might want to join in and help the younger ones... or might prefer to flee to a separate table with your laptop and something tasty.
Some adult workshops are suitable for older children - if in doubt, contact us!
