Stitching Workshop with Jan Cottam

Wednesday 5 July, 1pm to 3pm

FREE - £4 (see below)


To accompany our exhibition, A Diversity of Threads, participating artists will be holding a series of workshops and demonstrations giving you the chance to try your hand at techniques and see the inspiration behind the work.


Come and enjoy some gentle stitching at Florence with Jan Cottam. This workshop is suitable for novices and stitchers with some experience. All materials are provided and we will also be using some fabric prepared using Egremont Red pigment marks to make this a unique project related to our location at the Florence Mine.
We will have simple printed instructions for novices and reference stitch guide books for those who might want to try new or more complex stitches. At the end of the workshop you can either buy the embroidery hoop, fabric, a needle and some threads (£4.00) to continue at home; or you can just take your fabric work in progress without the hoop, needle or threads (free-of-charge).
Booking is essential as places are limited. To book please call 01946 824946 or email
