As this workshop is taking place at Sorcha’s residency home this will be the most personal workshop yet! Sorcha will be giving you a look inside her studio and showing you some special pieces from her archive including hand embellished one of a kind pieces which have been worn by Kate Moss, Kylie Minogue, Grimes and more. Sorcha will be talking about her practice all the highs, the lows, what she’s learnt so far! What it was like running an independent brand in London for five years, why she decided to step away from it 4 years ago to work for HUGE luxury brands in Italy and why she’s decided to relaunch back in her homeland lovely Ireland after 13+ years of living and working abroad!

Embroidery workshops

The aim of the course is to build a range of techniques so that students leave on the fourth week with the skills and confidence to build a deeper sense of independent style and identity within their approach to textiles. The workshop will focus on teaching both basic and explorative bead embroidery techniques.

Over the course of the 4 days, Sorcha will demonstrate a series of techniques. Alongside the demonstrations, Sorcha will provide one-to-one time with each student to offer creative and technical support , allowing each student to expand on their embroidery and surface textile ideas. Each student will receive a starter embroidery kit with materials and tools worth 35 euros.

The number of spaces on this workshop will be limited to ensure that each student will have the opportunity to work with Sorcha on an individual basis, making the course suitable for students of all levels.

All bookings are final for early bird deal.
