Join Stacey Chapman for a fun and festive live webinar, where she will bring a classic nutcracker doll to life using a pre-printed image and a variety of exciting stitch and textile techniques!

Cracking Stitch with the Nutcracker with Stacey Chapman

Thursday 9th December at 2pm-3:30pm (GMT)

Tickets: £7.50

Join us for a fun and full stitching tour around the classic figure of a nutcracker doll on a pre-printed image. The session will be a fast paced, inspiring smorgasbord of ideas and possibilities of how to render this festive favourite in stitch. Either sew along or sit back with a cuppa and take notes whilst your inspiration brews, ready to let loose after the session. You will watch and learn specific techniques of how to approach shading, hair and metallics plus touches of applique and freehand colour blocking along the way. 

This webinar would suit anyone from an artistic, non-sewing background to seasoned highly-skilled sewers that would like to get creative with this playful and fun session. 

The main aim of the webinar is to provide inspiration to be free and expansive with your interpretation of both this project and future textile work. Watch how Stacey responds to the printed image and how she tackles each individual area of the picture to create an exciting and technique-pushing result. Come join the fun!
