INTRODUCTION TO APPLIQUE EMBROIDERY - Sat 3 OCT 2-5 PM
Saturday 3 OCT 2-5 pm
All participants will have their own set of materials and tools to use during the workshop. Social distancing measures in place. Sanitised and clean surfaces.
Join us to expand your embroidery repertoire learning the technique of Appliqué! These are the few hours you have been dreaming of to recharge and de-stress. Come join us and spend a few hours in mindful creation for yourself.
Workshop is conducted by the wonderful mother and daughter duo from Momshoo.
This workshop will introduce the textile craft of hand-appliqué to create fabric pictures. Appliqué is a special branch of embroidery where small fabric patches are added onto a bigger fabric base. We will share tips and techniques including our favourite appliqué stitches and transferring designs to fabric.
This traditional textile craft (the technique dates back to the ancient Egyptian period!) is a versatile medium with everyday applications such as for mending holes in clothes and other fabric items.
Create your own masterpiece based on one of our designs inspired by local birds in Singapore. Participants would work to complete 1 bird design during the session with a take-home pattern sheet for further explorations beyond the workshop.
Pre-requisite: for participants who have done basic hand-sewing before.

- What fabrics are most appropriate for appliqué
