When does the workshop start and stop?
It starts now and ends in 7 days from the day you choose to enrol.
How can it be for free?
Because our mission is to get you to create! It's been a tough time and thus we want to offer you the opportunity to give watercolor embroidery a chance regardless of your current financial situation. There will be other paid courses available as well for those who wish to dive deeper, but this isn't one of them.
What if I'm a complete beginner to watercolor embroidery?
Perfect! The course is made for you! You don't need to have had experience with watercolor nor embroidery before to do this workshop. However, the concentration is on how to paint on fabric, thus you will most likely want to look for additional courses and resources to get a deeper introduction to various stitch techniques as well (for example check out our youtube Charles and Elin for more free videos).
Is there a pattern included?
No there are no patterns included. Instead you will have the opportunity to learn about the sampler technique and how you can use that to your benefit on your embroidery (and watercolor) journey.
