This is a fun one-day introduction to the Whitework technique of Pulled Thread Embroidery. You will learn how to embroider and construct your own sparkly Christmas bauble to hang on the Christmas tree. Using sparkly white thread and a selection of Pulled and Surface Stitches you will be given a manageable introduction to this technique before being shown how to very effectively back and mount their work in the 4-inch wooden hoop provided. The Pulled Thread Stitches covered during the day include Four Sided Stitch, Honeycomb Stitch, Eyelets and Stem Stitch.
Some experience of counted thread techniques such as Cross Stitch or Blackwork would be useful
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.
The class will run at The Traditional Textiles School, 17c Vyse Street, The Jewellery Quarter, Hockley, Birmingham. B18 6LE
