Upstairs at Oasis, 22 Tottenham Court Road, W1T 1BJ , London
Warm up to the festivities in this wonderful creative Christmas hoop workshop. Learn the speediest method of applique (the art of layering up fabric to create pictures) as well as the essential embroidery stitches you need to add lovely details. We'll show you lots of tips and cheats to help you make gorgeous decorations in a classic wooden embroidery hoop. There's tons of fabric to choose from, (some Christmassy and some more classic) with vintage, designer and everything in between in the stash for you to pick from.
You can create your own designs or use our templates, like this little snowman to create a totally unique handcrafted set of three decorations, each one finished with a lovely ribbon and backed with fleece. Your hoops are 6 inches in diameter, with a wooden double-hoop to stretch your fabric round and a metal clasp to tighten the hoops and hold your fabric firm.
Hang them from the wall, or the tree, or even give them as thoughtful personalised gifts.
Fill your afternoon with loveliness - your ticket includes a freshly handmade scone and coffee or tea from our wonderful hosts Saucer and Spritz. Not only that but all your luxury materials are included, so you can have a fine time rumaging through lots of luxury fabrics and trimmings!
Tickets are £39 and advance booking is essential! Your Meetup RSVP doesn't secure your place so you'll need to book your ticket here...
