Modern Embroidery Workshop Strasbourg

Strasbourg, France

Experience hosted by Muriel & Wilfried

  1. 2 hours
  2. Hosted in French and English

What you'll do

You will learn the traditional embroidery techniques, stitching designs that are not your Grandma's. Whether you are a total beginner or have a previous experience in needlework, you will be able to produce a great piece of textile art. You will be offered a choice of different embroidery designs ( please let me know which kit you have selected when you book), have a look on the pictures for a selection of them. You can for example pic one of my four seasons tattooed ladies or one of the “ anatomy and botanic” patterns line. Embroidery is full of possibilities and totally doable by anyone. The only conditions is to love using your hands and also to be a bit patient.
IMPORTANT: Please note that this workshop is only to embroider the patterns that I have designed ( and not a personnal object or drawing that you would bring). This is very important for the organisation of the workshop and a good cohesion between all the people who attend. You will be amazed by how fast you will learn and acquire the basics. No doubt you will be hooked by this really addictive and satisfying hobby!
Other things to note
You will have all the materials provided for the workshop, so no need to bring anything special with you.

Passionated with embroidery, I have launched my own Embroidery Kits on Etsy, three years ago under the name VintageMadbyM. The kits could be described as modern embroidery designs using traditional techniques.
I am selling them all over the world and am really grateful for the amazing feedbacks that I have got from customers. Most of my customers are total beginners and get hooked to embroidery with my kits.
I enjoy to transmit this love for embroidery as I believe making things with your hands can bring so much into people’ s lives and wellbeing. Work with head, heart, hands is my mantra!

Where you'll be

The workshop will take place in my beloved Art Deco house located in the lovely neighborhood of La Robertsau in Strasbourg.
My house has been decorated by unique, antique and vintage object found over the years in Charity shops and flea markets.
It has got a lot of handmade items too and has got a cosy and unique feel.
We will be hosted by my two lovely kitties, who accepted to share their personal space with us.

Ma fille Julie et moi-même avons beaucoup apprécié cette atelier initiation à la broderie, où nous avons appris les points essentiels et n’avons pas vu le temps passé! Les explications et les kits de Muriel sont clairs et précis et sont le reflet de sa passion pour la broderie. Expérience très enrichissante, n’hésitez pas à la tenter vous aussi !

J'ai passé un très agréable moment avec Muriel. Avec patience et douceur, elle a su m'initier à sa passion pour la broderie. Je continue à présent à travailler avec bonheur chez moi sur le modèle commencé. La maison de Muriel et Wilfried est particulièrement originale, et à 2 pas de l'arrêt de tram. Un petit thé et du gâteau pour se réchauffer furent également bienvenus. Je recommande cette expérience à ceux qui aiment les belles choses et la découverte !

We loved this. Very calming experience! Muriel has a special aura and she instructed us very well; we could not lay down our wonderful kits, in fact we finished them over the next couple of days.

Un grand merci à Muriel pour ce cours de broderie de grande qualité en toute intimité ! Mon amie et moi avons passé un très bon moment en sa compagnie.

Due to the coronavirus I had this experience on my own as a total beginner. Muriel still made sure I felt welcomed and accommodated me in a very lovely manner with tea and cake and rly took her time to explain the most important steps of embroidery to me. And even though I am very bad at smalltalk and sometimes was focused on my work Muriel made sure that the silence in between doesn't feel awkward. I would recommend this experience for everyone who is even the slightest bit interested in handcrafting in general or particularly in embroidery :)
