This five day class is designed to introduce you to a variety of embroidery techniques. Each day will focus on a different technique which will combine together to form a final image. This unique course has been designed, with the beginner in mind, to give a good grounding in 5 techniques. After the main elements have been completed and applied, the student then has the opportunity to add as much or as little embellishment as they wish to truly make it their own. The techniques included are Creative Pulled Thread Work, Trapunto Quilting, Appliqué, Stumpwork – needle lace, wired elements and raised details and Goldwork – couching and S-ing.
During this course the student will also learn how to transfer their design elements onto fabric, prepare fabrics for application and gain an understanding of how a piece like this comes together.
Each day you will be provided with the materials and tuition you need to complete each stage of the piece.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
