Zodiac Embroidered Brooch

  • The Fashion Lab Fourth Floor, Commercial Union House, 39 Pilgrim Street Newcastle Upon Tyne UK (map)

Calling all Cosmo Queens! The mysterious and often beautiful symbolism of astrology has long been inspiration for artists and designers. Collections by the likes of Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Valentino have all featured elements such as constellations, moon phases and horoscope symbols over recent years. The magical allure and feminist undertones of witchcraft has us under its spell, and who can complain when it's 'oh so stylish' and can still be totally unique and personal??

In this class, you will be taken through the steps to produce your very own embroidered horoscope pin badge/patch based on an original illustration. Choose from a selection of over 100 shades of quality Egyptian Cotton embroidery thread and various shades of British wool felt, and make it all your own!

No experience is necessary for this class, and all materials and tools will be provided.
