In this five part course you will learn different styles of embroidery from around the world.

Learn how to make creative and beautiful designs, transfer them on cloth and stitch with needle and thread. We start from the basics so beginners are welcome – and experienced crafters will get more inspiration and challenge.

We start with Finnish Waffle embroidery – easy technique with special waffle cloth but with endless creative opportunities. You’ll also learn Wool Embroidery, Hungarian embroidery with colourful flowers and Japanese Sashiko with tempting geometrical patterns.

Last afternoon is for finishing your projects, you can sew small products from your embroidered patches or start some great project to continue later.

This course is 15 hours in total – 3 hours on five subsequent Tuesday afternoons: 20.10., 27.10., 3.11., 10.11. and 17.11.

The course is led by Helka Mäki, qualified textile handicrafts teacher from Finland. I teach in English, but I can also guide in Finnish and limited German.

Cost: CHF 290 (All materials are included in the course fee: needles, fabrics and embroidery threads).

The workshop is located in Social Fabric's new Atelier at Eichstrasse 29, Zurich.

There are a limited number of spots for this course, so sign up in advance to guarantee a spot. To reserve your spot, RSVP here: http://www.meetup.com/Creative-Craft...nts/225504827/
