Ideal for beginners, ribbonwork embroidery incorporates a wide range of stitches and techniques using beautifully dyed silk ribbons to build up textures, shapes and designs .
This one day class offers an introduction to this traditional technique and covers the following stitches: looped straight stitch, woven wheel roses, gathered ribbon stitch, round gathered ribbon flowers, thumb running gathered flowers and looped ribbon petals.
These stitches will be combined to build up beautiful ribbon flowers which are applied to a wider length of ribbon tied around a decorative wicker heart.
The class kit will include everything you require to complete the project. You may like to bring your own embroidery scissors and you will be able to borrow ring frames, magnifiers and lights (if needed) on the day.
This class will run from 10am-4pm at Hampton Court Palace, East Molesey, Surrey KT8 9AU
