home: events [ embroidery hoop workshop ]
Need to be amongst people on Valentine’s Day? What’s better than getting creative, learning a skill and getting to have something for the home as a result?
Love the sound of this workshop at West Elm on Valentine’s Day – book now HERE
Learn to cross stitch a felt heart onto 100% wool felt. In this workshop you’ll get to stitch three hoops, in the colour combinations of your choice. This technique is really easy so suitable for beginners, but more experienced crafters will find it really satisfying too. You’ll go home with the project kit, including a template and pen, so you can carry on stitching hearts, for friends and family. Each participant will receive a Cotton Clara goody bag and there will be drinks and snacks provided on the evening.

home: event [ Home Futures ]
Still time to catch this great exhibition at the Design Museum. ‘Home Futures’ runs until March.
Explore today’s home through the prism of yesterday’s imagination. Are we living in the way that pioneering architects and designers throughout the 20th century predicted, or has our idea of home proved resistant to real change?
home: event [ printing workshop ]
Start the New Year with your creative juices flowing by making some art for you home. We found this fun Risograph Image Making Workshop at Hato Press in London. Learn the techniques of riso-printing and collage in a 2.5 hr session.
‘We’ll take you behind the scenes at our printing studio, packed with different paper stock, riso drums and colourful ink tubes. As a group we will perform a test exercise on riso-printing and work through a few art production techniques. Then it’s time to experiment with your individual artwork using a range of materials, including our pre-made templates, inks, stamps, clippings, charcoal and many more. We will be on hand to give you advice and tips on your artwork, and then we’re off to the live printing action of your master creation!‘
