We’re over the moon to announce our April Student of the Month, the fantastic Lily!

She conquered our inaugural Intermediate Goldwork/Stumpwork Koi Fish Workshop, held in partnership with Clara Stitching back in February, where she mastered the craft of embroidering an awe-inspiring Koi fish. We were lucky enough to have Lily share some insights into her life and her captivating journey into embroidery. Here’s what she had to say:


I am French and have been living in England since 2003. I am a French teacher and have followed in the footsteps of all the women in my family who have always been involved in crafts: sewing, knitting, crocheting, some embroidery, and I am a bit of a craft addict! Working with my hands helps me re-center myself and makes me happy.

A couple of months ago, I saw a post on Facebook advertising the Koi workshop. Knowing how popular it was, I was overjoyed when I managed to secure a spot. I was a bit anxious as I had never done any goldwork before. I really enjoyed the workshop, which was beautifully led by Clara. She gave very clear instructions and is very passionate about her art. I learned a lot and went home eager to finish the project. It took me a while as work and life got in the way of crafting, but I finally finished it.

I am so glad to have learned this new skill and I am planning to continue with goldwork: my head is swimming with project ideas.

We are so happy for Lily and love seeing her develop her embroidery skills, transforming her goldwork into something more!

We are excited to offer a few remaining in-person spots in our Intermediate Goldwork/Stumpwork Koi Fish Workshop with Clara Stitching on 8th June 10am – 4pm. You definitely don’t want to miss out on it.

If you are interested in being our next Student of the month, please share your London Embroidery School work with us! All you have to do is simply tag us on social media or send us a photo at classes@embroidery.london. One lucky participant will be chosen as the recipient of a £50 London Embroidery School gift card. You’ll also be featured on our social media and have an entire newsletter and blog post dedicated to you. We believe this is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your skills and celebrate your learning journey with us.

Best of luck and happy stitching!
