Thistle embroidery - Workshops workshops and talks
Learn how to transform and personalise your work and create something truly unique with my fun and simple free motion applique and machine drawing techniques.

I am a qualified teacher and have a degree in textile design and I am now running classes from my own studio in Farnborough, Hampshire.

Unfortunately, due to the current situation with COVID-19, the studio is currently closed for workshops. As soon as we can establish when we may be able to run workshops again, we will reopen bookings.

You will find details of other workshops and tours below as they are made available.

Whilst in-person workshops are not available at the moment, I am taking new bookings for Zoom talks and workshops and for dates in 2022. Please email me at workshops@janetclare.co.uk for further information.

Online Zoom Workshops

Even though we cannot meet in real life at the moment, Zoom is enabling us to run online workshops.

Teaching and presenting talks on Zoom is becoming the new normal these days and if you have not joined in yet then do not be scared to give it a go. If you can download an app, click a link in an email and turn on your camera phone you have all the technical skills you need!

I have been very pleased and relieved to find myself feeling so connected to the people on my Zoom workshops, I can see what everyone is up to and easily step in to help where needed. And everyone has a great view of my sewing machine!

We have tried to schedule some times that work internationally too, use the links below to read more and book now!

Free-Motion Stitching and Drawing with your Sewing Machine

90 Minute Online Zoom Workshop

This is my favourite technique and a really important part of how I achieve my appliqué and quilting style. Through a series of fun exercises and demos, I will teach you tips and tricks to enable you to confidently create your own thread sketches. Honestly, no real-life drawing skills are required!

You will be surprised by what you can create and your new-found skills can be used to create some lovely little gifts or hand made cards.

Just £15 per person.
