Choose your initial and learn traditional Blackwork and Goldwork embroidery stitches within this monogram design. This class provides a good grounding in Blackwork stitching, with three different patterns; plus embellishments with two Goldwork techniques, couching and chipping. All the stitches will be covered in the class, with a chance to practice at home.
The sample is stitched on 16 threads-per-inch aida cloth, but the kit is available on either aida or 32 threads-per-inch linen for a more traditional and challenging experience.
The tutor will demonstrate to the group, and give plenty of individual attention to each student allowing you to develop your embroidery skills. The class is suitable for students of any skill level.
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
