Conductive Thread Embroidery

Have you visited the amazing Workshop in Leeds? A cafe, haberdashery and all round creative space in Headingley. They offer a great programme of creative workshops and I’ve been working with them to offer a conductive thread embroidery class on Sunday 14 July from 11am to 1pm.

Learn the traditional craft of hand embroidery, I will guide you through the basics of hand embroidery where you will learn how to create your own geometric stitched image using a variety of embroidery stitches including back stitch, chain stitch and blanket stitch.

Once you have completed your embroidered design onto calico fabric, you will learn how to create your own soft circuit using conductive thread to light up an LED in your design.

This workshop is suitable for beginners to embroidery and all materials and equipment will be provided. Click here to book your tickets through the Workshop website.
