Botanical Embroidery Workshop at OBJECT, Chorlton, Chorlton, 9 October 2021, from £49.1 - Book now

Embroidery might not be the first craft that comes to mind when you think of edgy botanical influenced design. However, textile artist Rebecca Stevens is changing this, one workshop at a time. Join her for an evening of in person botanical embroidery, where those stereotypes of drab and old-fashioned needlework will be thoroughly dismantled.

Her approach combines traditional embroidering techniques with modern thread painting

Over the course of the three hour afternoon session at Object Style in Chorlton you’ll learn, 3 types of embroidery stitch which you can then apply to a range of botanically inspired designs. All materials are provided including a 5 inch embroidery hoop, a choice of multiple fabrics, needles threads and scissors as well as a glass of prosecco on arrival. Over the session you can perfect your needle skills whilst taking advantage of the mindful properties of embroidering. There is a deep satisfaction to be gained from watching your design come to life on the fabric.

Rebecca is a Embroidery artist in Manchester. Having started as a hobbyist in 2016, she turned her passion into a full time business in just three years. She now creates bespoke commissioned work as well as facilitating workshops and sharing her enthusiasm for the artform through kits for people to try it at home. Her approach combines traditional embroidering techniques with modern thread painting to achieve results that resonate with nature.

If you can’t wait till the in person sessions, check out the tutorial videos on Rebecca’s website where you can learn some of the basic botanical embroidery techniques from home.
