From planning, drawing and sewing, you will be given tuition in all the skills you need to create your own piece of Textile Art. Using basic sewing skills, you will be shown how to design and create your unique piece of art. Working with your team of two, you can create something special, either together or individually.  You will be able to frame the resulting free-hand embroidery as a picture.
