Botanical Stitch in a Circle – joyfully! with Amanda Duke

Simple design and hand stitch techniques to suit those wishing to ‘free up’.

(option to continue to 5pm in the garden, weather dependant)

Maximum number of places – 8                Course fee £70 including fabric and thread.

Bring your own circle hoop or borrow one on the day (or let me know if you would like to purchase one from me).

This 1-day course is suitable for beginners, improvers and for those who would like to create their very own designs simply and without fear. Collect garden plants, sketch, arrange, create a design and transfer to fabric before embellishing with simple running stitches. The aim is to free the mind, increase self-confidence and introduce you to the abundant adaptations of the simple running stitch.

      Wonderful garden well worth a visit. Great variety of plants showing so many ways of portraying a garden layout. Must comment on the great tea and cakes selection, our dog loved the doggy ice cream!

      Beautifully planted area, in which you are encouraged to walk along paths between the plants so can be completely surrounded by foliage - a lovely effect.
