Monoprinting with free motion embroidery

One of my most popular face-to-face workshops is now available as a series of short video tutorials.

Both of the techniques – monoprinting and free motion embroidery – are exciting when you practise them individually. But layer them together and you begin to create magic.

We’ll begin by having fun with monoprinting, where you apply paint directly onto an object and use it to create one unique imprint. We’ll work with plants, seedheads and other natural finds to create gorgeous effects. I’ll give advice on what to use and demonstrate how to get the most interesting results.

Then it’s time to dust off your sewing machine and find out just what it can do. I’ll show you how to:

  • set up your sewing machine for free motion embroidery
  • work both freely and safely
  • choose the best thread, stitches, tension and speed
  • translate sketches into free motion embroidery
  • embroider the outline of plant shapes to sit beautifully against your monoprinting.


You’ll gain the confidence and skills you need to create a stunning and original artwork of your own. Once you’ve finished the course you’ll be able to experiment freely with the techniques you’ve mastered.

You’ll also be invited to join our facebook community. It’s a great way to see what others are creating, to share your work and ask questions.

Sign up now for instant access to the video tutorials. You can then work through them in your own time, pausing and rewinding as often as you like.
