Embroidery on Knits workshop with Judit Gummlich
We are over the moon to have Judit Gummlich visiting us on the 25th of February!
Embroidering knitwear looks impressive, but it doesn't have to be difficult!
In this workshop you will learn the basics and techniques you need to embellish your own knitted or crocheted projects with woollen embroidery and turn them into something unique and personal.
The workshop will take place from 2 to 5pm with a short break and will be held right next door to Loop, at our lovely neighbour Frequency Coffee. Please come to Loop at least a few minutes before the class starts and we will and bring you over to Frequency, to settle you in with a free coffee as well.
In this three-hour workshop you will learn:
- what to consider when planning/special features of embroidery on knits
- how to choose the right materials and tools
- preparing the embroidery hoop
- the basic stitches
- embroidering the motif (planning your route, starting and finishing the thread, embroidering with multiple threads )
- post-processing and aftercare
- recognising and correcting mistakes
Plus a lot of tips and tricks on how to create beautiful designs that take even the plainest knitted piece to a new level. This is a great way to use up scraps, to give knitted garments a new life and add another craft skill to your creative repertoire.
This workshop is aimed at both beginners and advanced crafters, all levels are welcome.
Embroidery templates, water soluble stabiliser, embroidery needles, yarn scraps and beads will be provided.
-stable embroidery hoop (preferably with a diameter of about 20 cm, but can also be purchased from Judit).
-small needlework scissors
-optional: own template, yarn scraps and a garment to be embroidered
Homework/please prepare if you don’t bring a garment: swatch appr. 25x25 cm, preferably in stockinette stitch, washed and blocked.
