About this course

A variation on the craze for ‘colouring for mindfulness’, this course will allow you to indulge a passion for colour and enjoy some mental relaxation through ‘thread painting’. Using coloured threads rather than coloured pencils, you will aim to produce a picture from an existing design, or from an outline sketch of your own. No prior experience of drawing, stitching or embroidery is required.
By the end of this course you should be able to
• Describe the technique of thread painting
• Transfer an outline embroidery design onto fabric
• Work a number of embroidery stitches including satin stitch, long and short stitch and back stitch

How will I be taught?

Craft courses provide an opportunity for you to learn and develop skills, techniques and understand how to design for a chosen craft to a higher level. Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques.
Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising craftspeople.

What do I need to bring with me?

You will be required to provide sufficient materials for their own project; your tutor will give advice on this in the first session. You will also need to bring a basic sewing kit, notepad and pencil.

What can I do next?

These courses are designed to progress students to higher levels of the craft with KAE ore other related Craft course such as Quilting, Applique or Embroidery.

What do I need to join the course

An interest in Stitching for relaxation and a desire to learn about colour and thread.
It is important to note that craft courses are practical, requiring a degree of manual dexterity.
