Folk Art Embroidery Workshop

14 September 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 26 October 2023 @ 9:30 pm


Join tutor Linda O’Kane and learn various stitches, then combine them into a story cloth of your own. The workshop was  inspired by the colourful embroidered story cloths of the Hmong people of Laos, richly portraying their lives.

All materials will be provided but please bring your own scissors to sessions.

About the tutor: Linda has worked in the Antiques/Interior Decoration trade for over 30 years. As a self taught Decorative Artist she has worked in homes throughout the UK, including some superior hotels. A life long love of sewing, patchwork and cross stitch has enabled her to gain excellent experience over the years. She really enjoys teaching, sharing her knowledge and hopefully inspiring others to get creative.
