Join us for our Emoji Big Buttons Family Stitch Workshop on 19th February and learn how to stitch one of these eye-catching Emoji Faces and make it into a wearable button! The workshop is open to one adult and child (7+) or two children (7+) accompanied by a non-stitching parent or guardian. Suitable for all levels, this class is inspired by our current exhibition, Faces & Figures in Stitch.
During the class you will learn how to create a button using hand embroidery stitches including Back Stitch, Stem Stitch, Back Stitch, Couching and Appliqué. Before you start stitching you will have a chance to view some of the pieces from our exhibition, including the amazing Blackwork portrait of our Patron, the Duchess of Cornwall.
The cost includes two kits. The class kit will include everything you require to complete the project. You may like to bring your own embroidery scissors and you will be able to borrow ring frames, magnifiers and lights (if needed) on the day.
This class will run from 10.30am-1pm at Hampton Court Palace, East Molesey, Surrey KT8 9AU. Please meet outside the main moat entrance to the Palace 20 minutes before the start of your class at 10.10am. The event will last for 2.5 hours. We are unable to offer refunds or transfers on this event.
