Botanical Embroidery Weekend with Lucy Freeman at Chatsworth

In this two day workshop, you’ll learn the art of botanical embroidery, as we explore the beautiful Chatsworth Garden and draw inspiration from the flowers in bloom around us.


15th June 2024 - 16th June 2024 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Learn to create beautiful botanical embroidery inspired by the Chatsworth Garden.

Artist Lucy Freeman's contemporary embroidery style is easy to learn, quick and expressive. It's simpler than the traditional methods and produces expressive and painterly results, perfect for flowers and plants.

We will start from the absolute basics of threading a needle so all abilities are welcome. During the workshop we will sew a sampler hoop of Lucy’s four basic stitches, as well as creating your own botanical design, inspired by the Chatsworth Garden. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the garden, taking photographs and drawing to inspire your finished piece.

Lucy’s embroidery artwork will be on display throughout the workshop for inspiration, as well as a variety of drawings, templates and botanical illustrations.

Your ticket includes all the materials: fabric, threads, templates, an embroidery hoop and needle, as well as instructional sheets and access to video tutorials so you can continue to learn more after the workshop. Plus, you can take everything home with you to continue sewing at home. Entry to the Chatsworth Garden and car parking are also included.

Tea and coffee will be available throughout the day, along with a delicious, locally sourced graze box lunch from the Chatsworth Farm Shop.
