Embroider Your Own Tablecloth with Sally Bower
Join local Walyalup (Fremantle) artist Sally Bower and learn all about the fun and intricate craft of embroidery. Design and stitch your own full size tablecloth incorporating your own ideas or borrow from Sally's larger than life templates in her own unique style.
You could choose to embroider individual place settings or go for a more abstract-take.
This class will start you off on your adventure. Embroidering a full tablecloth is a long-term project, and start to finish will depend on the intricacy of your design. You will leave this class with the beginnings of an heirloom piece designed to enhance your dining experience and the skills to continue at home.
All tools, materials and light morning tea will be provided.
You will receive a heavy-weight French or Belgian linen tablecloth in a neutral colour, as well as needles, yarn, and a practice piece to work on.
There are no previous skills required, simply bring your authentic self.
