Does the thought of drawing your own designs scare you off?

Don't let overwhelm get in your way to creative fulfilment!

Trust me, you are able to draw much better than you think, if you just allow yourself a guiding hand in the process.

Draw along example of a beautiful rooftop design

The workshop is structured in a practical draw-along format, which will allow you to gain a deeper understanding for exactly how to start, proceed and finish a drawing.

Thanks to the real-time example, I (Elin) am able to break down each step into manageable chunks.

This includes explanations of not only the HOW but the WHY we make certain moves so that you are able to apply your new skills to other projects in the future.

Why drawing for embroidery?

The more skills and know-how you can put under your belt, the more confident you will feel in your creative pursuits.

For example, next time you're out for a walk; look around you with the eyes of an artist and snap a picture!

Who knows - it might just be the perfect shot to practise your new drawing skills and potentially begin your journey of creating your own embroidery designs too.

BONUS Pattern + videos

For further guidance on how you can embroider the rooftop design that we draw together in the workshop, you will also receive a pattern of the rooftops in Tallinn, Estonia + 2 process videos of how you can embroider it in different ways. The image depicts the mixed media (watercolor) version, which is one of the videos.
