I’ve spend Saturday in the Anthropologie Edinburgh store doing a Stitch Workshops for Anthropologie customers. We were located in the lovely garden area downstairs, with lovely plants, paper tree trunks from the window display and surrounded by lovely Anthropologie products- perfect!
My workshop uses stitch and embellishment to decorate little bags. I brought along some stencils of things I use in my work – trees, leaves, pheasants, words and a wee Christmas pudding for a bit of festive cheer. I made some samples in advance to give people the idea of what to do and we used a range of wool, buttons, beads and ribbons….
I love it the window display at he moment! Pop along to see the giant paper owl!
Lots of passing people watching us from the windows and shoppers interested in us doing crafty stuff.
It was also great to be in store where my artwork is being used on Anthropologie wool scarves, with one of the style now half price – you’ll need to be fast to get one! And I’ve got such a connection with the store with originally doing the temporary storefront which is now being featured in store on the stairs area and I’ve also created collections of hand printed scarves for them.
Lots of happy makers with their finished bags!
We had lots of great finished products – cute elephant, button trees, dashing dog, leaves, christmas pudding and festive cat…… to name a few.
All the money raised is going to The Woodlands Trust Scotland (once I know the amount I’ll update you!) Thanks to all that came along and enjoyed the workshops!
