Embroidery on Photographs
February 24, 2024
This unique workshop will reveal ways to add dimensions and colours to your family photos or found vintage photos using a range of embroidery stitches. Embroidery patterns can embellish items in the photographs such as clothing or objects; or they can be used to add new elements, or even create new personalities of the figures in the photo. You will learn basic embroidery stitches and how to apply them to the photographs. Suitable for all levels. See supply list.
