Do you want to develop your skills with your sewing machine and learn how to 'draw' with the simple straight stitch? Then this is your course! You will start by stitching a design that I have prepared. I will demonstrate every stage step-by-step. This will give you the confidence and the understanding necessary to empower you to start and develop your own design for the rest of the course. Some experience with using the 'darning foot', which allows you to stitch freely in any direction is important. Try practising, even a little, beforehand, so that you are confident with it and excited about its amazing possibilities.
Sewing RICHARD BOX trained at Goldsmiths' School of Art and went on to be Senior Lecturer and Head of Art at Avery Hill College of Education. He is a regular exhibitor and demonstrator at the Knitting and Stitching shows and other craft fairs. He runs courses in drawing, painting and his system of textile art which combines fabric collage with both machine and hand embroidery. He has written seven books and made two DVDs about drawing, design, colour and embroidery.
