Helen created a warm relaxed atmosphere in which to hand embroider our own needle rolls based on Charlotte Brontes’ darning roll.

Using rag paper, collage and stitch I made a composition I am proud of . Thank you Helen

A very enjoyable afternoon learning a new technique.

Great workshop. Beautiful ideas and well explained how to do the mirror work

The time flew by and I left feeling calm and relaxed.

She had provided everything we needed and was encouraging as we went through the day.

Feeling very inspired to do more hand embroidery after your workshop. thank you for sharing your skills, knowhow and creativity.

A very informative talk and enjoyable workshop with Helen Barnes
