Over the course of the day you will learn how to make a small, handstitched character approximately 12cm tall. Your 3D character will be built upon a Sylko-style cotton reel using felt, fabric scraps and haberdashery; it’s personality will be brought to life with hand embroidery. When complete, the head of your embroidered character will be ready and willing to be used as a pincushion.

Some previous experience of using needle and thread would be helpful.
