Learn the basics of embroidery

with Embellished Talk

Rebeckah will teach you how to do French knots, satin, running, star and back stitches using embroidery floss (thread) on plain cotton fabric, as well as playing around with stitching on template designs. Once you feel confident you can embroider on a tote, drawstring bag or t-shirt of your choice.

This course is perfect for anyone who would like to try their hand at embroidery, and people who would like to perfect their embroidery skills.

With her platform, Embellished Talk, Rebeckah has run workshops in WAH Nails, Anthropologie, Lush, Palm Vaults, West Elm, Warehouse and various co-working spaces around London. She’s also collaborated and embroidered t-shirts for the not-for-profit GURLS TALK, a mental health platform founded by fashion model Adwoa Aboah.
