In Person course - Deemouth Artist Studios Project Space, Torry, Aberdeen. Friday 24th May

10am – 12:30pm


Maximum Class Size: 6

Level: Beginner/Intermediate.

In this relaxed introductory in person workshop I'll demonstrate a number of darning techniques to allow you to use darning as a method to repair or lengthen the life of your treasured textile items.


You will leave with knowledge of this beautiful textile technique and the start of a small stitch sampler that you can use as reference for your own future projects.


You will cover the following techniques:

  • Getting started – setting up your work, handling threads, starting and stopping stitching
  • English Darning
  • Honeycomb darn
  • Chain Darning


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


Light refreshments will be provided. The day will include a short tea/coffee break.


What others have said about Fiona’s courses:

“Immediately I felt completely comfortable in the environment Fiona created for us all. It was a joy to learn something new and to be able to share such lovely quiet time, working away on our pieces with a new bunch of people.”


“Fiona creates very well structured, thoughtful and engaging content which is clearly laid out before the course even starts which get you excited. The sessions were a real treat. Extremely pleasurable experience and Fi has a friendly natural teaching style.”


“I'm developing new skills, am motivated to try things and am gently getting to know other people too. Fiona's community has a comfortable atmosphere for both artistic people and those at the more crafty end of the creative spectrum.”
