DHAL + DIY Workshop

In February 2020, at the Old Bank Residency in Manchester I delivered a workshop as part of their regular Dhal +DIY Friday afternoon events. To tie in with the tasty dhal and lunch time theme, I invited participants to embroider onto material napkins. To be mindful of waste and recycling, we used vintage napkins and second hand embroidery threads to work with. I taught attendees how to transfer their own designs onto the napkins using a variety of embroidery stitches, ranging from lazy daisy, buttonhole, back stitch and french knots.
