Contemporary Hand Embroidery Workshop with Marna Lunt : Embroidered Frida Kahlo or Butterfly Brooch
Come for a day of fun and stitching with the super talented Embroidery Artist Marna Lunt and make a beautiful Stitched Frida Kahlo or Butterfly Brooch Pin, using her technique of thread painting.Fabrics and threads are supplied, but you can bring your own pieces of felt, blanket, buttons and pearls and include them to make them even more personal if you want to! Marna will show you the more advanced technique of using stitches to "paint" with thread to create your piece.
From a fine art background and self taught in textiles, Marna brings a very different outlook into her work and so teaches in a fun and relaxed manner and wants everyone to get the same therapy and joy that she does from slow stitch.
Based in the North East of England, Marna Lunt is a textile artist whose work is influenced by the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors where she grew up. Using colours and textures that you would normally find dancing in the heather, she paints and hand stitches her work in her home studio.
Personality and soul emerges in each unique creation and the end result is something to treasure, something that you will want to keep forever; a modern day heirloom.Price : £95
with course materials provided and included, a full days tuition with Marna, drinks & snacks, and terribly British afternoon tea and cake! if you would like to bring some of your own fabric scaps to use - that's fine too.
PLUS : You will also be entitled to 10% discount in our shop "The Fluff-a-torium" on the day of your Embroidery workshop with Marna Lunt.
