Inspired by William Morris’s bold textile design Windrush, we will explore a number of traditional crewel embroidery stitches (stem stitch, long and short shading, blanket stitch, French knots and heavy chain stitch) using crewel wools on a linen twill fabric in order to stitch this contemporary design. Suitable for beginners/intermediate level stitchers. Full instructions are given to enable you to complete at home if 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 3 Fowlers Yard, Back Silver Street, Durham DH1 3RA
