Would you like to spend a weekend exploring a new hobby, learning needlepoint/tapestry or improving your skills?
Anna Pearson, author of The Complete Needlepoint Course and Needlepoint Stitch by Stitch, will be running a workshop in Primrose Hill over the weekend of 18–20 October.
Two projects will be on offer: a glasses case; or a small panel stitch fantasy with more than 30 stitches to try. Both are suitable for beginners and those who have already done needlepoint but wish to learn extra tips and stitch in a friendly atmosphere.
- Friday (6‒7.30 pm) starts with prosecco and nibbles, a short background to needlepoint and collection of kits.
- Saturday runs from 10 am to 5.30 pm with plenty of time for coffee, lunch and tea.
- Sunday runs from 10.30 am to 4 pm and includes coffee, lunch and tea.
You can stitch, ask questions and admire each other’s work. Anna will be on hand throughout.
The cost of the weekend is £149 plus £12 for the glasses case or £25 for the Florentine panel.
