art, embroidery and paper craft workshops

 

 

Art, embroidery and paper craft workshops with Pauline Twyman

Welcome..

I am an artist and tutor living in Scotton (near Richmond, North Yorkshire)

I love all kinds of art, embroidery and paper crafts and I particularly enjoy making books and filling them full of stitch samples.

I have been stitching for over 20 years and now, after completing a City & Guilds level 3 in embroidery & design, I want to share the skills I have learned.

I will be running a series of 12 workshops over the period of a year, at a cost of £25 per person.

 

Have a look through my website and perhaps book a workshop with me. Alternatively I can come to your group. I take a maximum of 12 people, the fee would be £200 + travel 40p per mile.

 

About the Workshops

  • All workshops will be held at Scotton Village Hall, Hawthorne Avenue, Scotton (see map below). There is a large car park and the hall is large with lots of light, heating, a nice kitchen and toilets (including disabled).
  • All workshops run from 10 till 4.
  • The workshops marked * are best worked with a sewing machine (I have 2 available on the day)
  • I will be running 4 workshops specifically based on stitch samples ~ which can be collated into a book for your future reference.
  • I have included a variety of themes including some simple bookmaking, a decorated canvas, and simple dollmaking.
  • All materials can be provided, unless otherwise stated, however feel free to bring any of your own supplies if preferred.
  • You will require a basic sewing kit, scissors, needles, pins and embroidery hoop, notebook and pen/pencil.
