The students will also learn how to work with silk ribbon, and will practice the most important stitches in ribbon embroidery. More than ten different stitches and lots of different threads are used to create such a textured embroidery. The students will work with a variety of plain and hand-dyed cotton, silk, and wired threads of different thicknesses to create the raised embroidery.
