Hand embroidery has been practiced for centuries and remains a hugely popular and fulfilling craft today.  As with most crafts, hand embroidery is wide and varied in technique, style and usage.  Traditional crewel embroidery, fine and delicate silk work, contemporary mixed media or modern folk art to name just a few.

About Sew Forest of Dean

Sew Forest of Dean
Sew Forest of Dean

Hi, In case we haven't met, I'm Jen and I run workshops and courses in needle and thread.  I've been stitching since a very young age and I'm City and Guilds qualified in patchwork and embroidery. I'm passionate about sewing and textiles and am constantly experimenting with new techniques and designs.  All of my workshops/courses take place in my purpose-built garden studio in the pretty Gloucestershire village of Clearwell.  Classes are offered with a maximum of 4 attendees for machine-based workshops and 6 for hand stitched workshops to ensure a fun and relaxed day, with plenty of 1-2-1 support.   I also offer private tuition so please do get in touch if you would like something that you don't see offered here.  Happy stitching 😊
