You may recognise this type of embroidery from your Grandma's home in the 60s, but now it is back! Well, actually it never really left. Bargello is a truly unique form of embroidery as there are both specific stitches and patterns required to make Bargello, Bargello.
During the class you will be introduced to the typical 'Vertical' stitch used throughout all Bargello, and then you'll get your head around the geometric patterns which are also characteristic of Bargello. You'll be stitching in no time, either one of our patterns or your own design, as our tutor is on hand to teach you how to use this unique form of embroidery to design your own unique pattern. Bargello can be used on normal fabric-like needlepoint fabric but we're using plastic canvas so that you can turn your Bargello design into a coaster! Or you can sew them up to create a pencil holder, plant pot, tissue box cover even.
Please get in touch if you are a family living together or part of a "support bubble" so we can make arrangements for you to sit together.
Reduced to 6 per workshop, we have decided to leave our seating at 2m apart.
Do I Need to Bring Anything:
During the lesson you'll start two coasters and receive plenty of wool to finish your creations. You will take home a kit consisting of a total of 2 canvas and the wool and needle you need to complete your coasters.
All our workshops include unlimited tea, coffee and we always have plenty of cake on offer at every workshop and vegan friendly biscuits. If you require gluten free sweet treats please let us know!
