This stunning brooch was inspired by the gift created by the RSN for the Queen’s 90th birthday in 2016. This two day class will guide you through the processes used to create an embroidered broooch. Using the Stumpwork techniques of wired shapes and needlelace enhanced with touches of Goldwork, surface stitches, and applique, you will bring all these elements together to create a unique and wearble piece of jewellery.
The motifs are the Tudor Rose representing Hampton Court Palace, the flagship of the RSN, and England; the Thistle representing Scotland; the Daffodil representing Wales and the Shamrocks representing Northern Ireland. Each motif is linked together with the Queen’s Tartan to represent the United Kingdom as a whole.
Some previous embroidery experience will be necessary.
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.
