What will I learn?

You will learn how to draw, paint, hand and machine sew – all in one day!

We will start with a drawing of a simple motif/saying and then paint it with watercolours. You do not need any drawing skills as I have some to trace if you aren’t feeling confident. Once the paint is dry (after we have our tea and scones) we will then use a variety of techniques to embellish the piece – hand stitiching, machine stitching and applique.

I have lots of fabrics and templates for you to use and basically everything you need to try out these fun techniques.

What do I bring?

Nothing but lots of enthusiasm … and a packed lunch (unless you want to pop into town for lunch).

What will I take home?

You will take a home a beautiful handmade piece of wall art that will no doubt become a family heirloom. Not only that but bucket loads of ideas, tips and techniques.

Workshops at Michelle’s charming country cottage have often been described as “an idyllic retreat” and compared to “a day at the spa”. They are a delightful way to spend a few hours in a truly inspirational setting in rural Ireland. You will receive a warm welcome on arrival and expert tuition but at the same time actively encouraged to explore your own creativity. It’s hard not to feel creative in Michelle’s cottage where you are surrounded by her upcycled pieces of furniture and shelves filled with all sorts of sewing notions, spools of thread and crafty bits and pieces. Not only that but Michelle’s enthusiasm for all things crafty is highly infectious!
