"There are many workshops that teach you skills and technique, my workshops are not one of them. I am passionate about helping people find their creative style, this happens through being open to letting go and of having to do it right and get it perfect. I take you on a journey to meet your creative self and discover many things on the way.
A time for you to tap into your creative energy and nourish your heart and soul! Great if you are feeling a bit blocked in your life either creatively or generally or you just fancy trying something different!

Polymer Clay workshop - Egyptian Treasures
In this workshop, we will be inspired by Ancient Egypt. 
Working from beautiful images found in the Treasures of the Cairo Museum book that will be available at the workshop, we will make imitation lapis lazuli, carnelian and turquoise out of polymer clay. 
Using simple modelling methods we will create a gorgeous winged scarab focal bead, with complementary accessory beads of carnelian, lapis lazuli and turquoise.  
You will take home a lovely selection of beads that can be made into your own unique treasure from Ancient Egypt.  
Advice will be available on stringing and construction of your neckpiece, but due to time constraints, there won’t be the opportunity to create your jewellery in the class.
Skill level: beginner with some experience of working with polymer clay upwards. 

Starting on Sept 27th 2015 

Hand-stitched Embroidery: step-by-step workshops 
Sundays from 10 - 4 pm, 
£42 per workshop
A series of monthly workshops, each one concentrating on a distinctive, traditional embroidery technique.

The course is designed to encourage experimentation and the creative use of stitch.

Each workshop is a hands-on, practical session with participants learning the key embroidery stitches used for each technique and then creating their own completed pieces of contemporary work.
You will be taught a wide range of stitches.
Handouts will be provided at every workshop.

Each session will include an inspiring powerpoint with examples of how the techniques are being used in a creative  and contemporary way.

Course work includes keeping a sketchbook, drawing (don’t panic you don't need to be good at drawing!), researching and some private study.
The course is aimed at beginners and upwards, so previous experience is not necessary.

Each session is a stand-alone workshop. 
However anyone able to attend  all the sessions will experience the use of pattern, texture, and colour in embroidery, employing a wide range of stitches and will gain confidence in expressing their own ideas in stitichery.
Therfore it is recommended that you see this as a six module course and join us for all sessions if possible.

The tutor, Liz Thomas, is an experienced teacher, textile artist and is passionate about embroidery.  She has a BA Hons in Textiles/ Fashion, specialising in Embroidery, studying under Constance Howard and Christine Risley.

Sept 27th: pattern in embroidery.  Black work: Also called Spanish work as it was brought to England by Queen Catherine of Aragon, the first wife of Henry VIII, though it goes further back to the ancient Egyptians and Persians.
10 - 4 pm, 
£42 per workshop
