We’ve run this beginners hand embroidery course several times over the years and our students have become diehard fans of the twinchie, a modest 2 x 2 inch square of fabric that can spark creativity in anyone.
You mean you’ve never heard of a twinchie? It’s the gateway to learning embroidery that’s joyfully addictive and doesn’t require lots of expensive kit.
During the course, students learn:
- 12 basic embroidery stitches, from backstitch to blanket stitch
- Where to find inspiration and develop your own designs
- How to choose colour combinations for textile designs
- Ideas for developing learning through the week
Learn more about twinchies in our video: What is a twinchie? And how do I make one?
Our beginners hand embroidery course runs for 6 weeks, 1 hour per week. We teach the course live via Zoom and use video, live demonstrations and encourage our students to ask questions as they go along. The course includes a starter kit to get students started, which they can add to as the course progresses.
