In Person course - Deemouth Artist Studios Project Space, Torry, Aberdeen. Saturday 8th June, 10:30am - 4pm


Maximum Class Size: 6

Level: Beginner/Intermediate.

This course combines two of my favourite techniques - mono print and hand stitch, and is suitable for all levels.


In this day long relaxed in person workshop we'll spend our morning exploring simple mono-print techniques using botanical elements as material and inspiration. Following a lunch break we will then explore different hand embroidery stitches that we can use to embellish our prints.


You will leave with a number of print samples and a progressed final piece that you can go on to develop in your own time if you choose.


You will cover the following techniques:

  • Mono-printing on fabric using simple stamps / natural materials
  • Getting started – setting up your hoop, handling threads, starting and stopping stitching
  • Several embroidery stitches suited to your printed piece
  • Bringing your stitches together to create your own composition


Materials to bring with you: For this course all materials will be provided, but you are welcome to bring along your own fabric, embroidery hoop, needle and threads if you wish.

Light refreshments will be provided. The day will include a 30 minute lunch break but please bring your own lunch.


What others have said about Fiona’s courses:

“I was delighted with the content and pace of this course. Excellent, clear tuition and very interesting examples of others' work to inspire and enthuse us. As a beginner, I really didn't expect to come away with a completed piece - and I did! I was astonished by what I achieved. Brilliant, friendly and fun! Thank you so much, Fiona.”


“The course has been brilliant, I’ve gone from knowing really nothing about stitching to being totally addicted! It’s very relaxing and also very satisfying to create something from scratch.”


“Before this course I could not sew. I now know over 10 different stitches and have been given the opportunity and space to think of the creative ways to apply stitching. I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and would highly recommend Fiona who is so encouraging.”


“I loved how Fiona took us from a basic place but pointed us towards wonderful artistry. It was very empowering and inspiring!”
