Embroidered Foliage & Tea Cup Tote Bags

Create a personalised embroidered tote bag using Winterbourne’s foliage and flowers, and vintage teacups as your inspiration.

This workshop is suitable for the beginner or experienced embroiderer alike.  All the steps from drawing out the design, choosing the stitches and embroidering them will be demonstrated and supported by Claire.  For those wishing to extend their stitch knowledge there will be working examples, inspiring textiles from Vietnam, and vintage embroidery books for reference.

You will leave with your personally designed and embroidered tote bag.
