Majo van der Woude – Embroidery on knitware

On October 20 and 21, 2017, ‘Tree of Needlework’ is present on the nederlandse breidagen in Rijswijk.

Knitting is next to hip and trendy and also very relaxing. It’s great fun to knit your own scarf, hat or gloves. But did you know that you can brighten it with a few simple embroidery stitching? Emboridery on your bought or homemade knitware can make it even more personal.
In this workshop you will learn how you can make (free) embroidery on knitting.

With attention for:
* How do you get the pattern/design on the fabric.
* How can you prevent your knitting will stretch as you embroider it.
* Some simple embroidery stabbing as stem stitch, satin/flat stitching, daisy stitch, blanket stitch and French knot.

And then we get to work with the knitted piece you brough to the class.

The teacher: Majo van der Woude embroiders as since her primary school.
She’s at home and abroad, and now gives also online courses in a variety of embroidery techniques.
Embroidery means to her:
do it (create/make your own)
learning (technology/sitiching/crafts in other cultures/inspiration)
study (historical context/storage/preservation of ancient techniques)
being together and collaborate with peers (encourage each other and learn from each other) and provides balance/rest as opposed to today’s busy society.

And that is to transfer them, where the important thing is that they have fun chance to create something / make.
In 2015, she also started Tree of needlework (www.treeofneedlework.nl) where they want to connect supply and demand in hand work together. In that context she gives inter alia embroidery workshops and courses.
