Smøyg Pattern Darning Workshop

9am - 4pm Daily (1hr lunch break)
Saturday 31st July - Sunday 1st August, 2021

Smøyg is pattern darning from Norway. Pattern darning is worked in running stitch, where the placement of the stitches is guided by counting the threads of the fabric.
The project is a small square panel (approx 13x13cm) which could be framed, mounted into a cushion, onto a box top or onto a bag.

All skill levels are welcome!
NB: In these uncertain times, we recommend you have an appropriate travel insurance policy.
