This workshop will focus on appliqué and surface texture.
Maverick textile guru, fashion and interiors expert Laura Lees has designed an exclusive short course where participants will be able to customise a unique piece of clothing/fabric using freehand machine embroidery, hand embroidery and surface textiles to create a totally bespoke,
individual design in a relaxed, friendly and creative environment.
Don’t let your skills inhibit your imagination, complete beginners are welcome, just bring an open mind and your scissors! There will be an abundance of fabric and templates for you to choose from to create your embroidered applique, as well as threads, trims and tricks of the trade.
Sewing machines will be provided. Bring your ideas and I’ll help you realise them.
As well as running her own label and interiors house, Laura has designed and crafted limited edition
one-off pieces for fashion collections with Sibling, Luella and Giles as well as making guitar straps
for The Strokes and working with clients as varied as Courtney Love to the Rolling Stones.
