RSN Tutor, Helen Stevens will be teaching a bespoke Silk Shading embroidery class at The D-Day Story Museum on Friday 20 March 2020 as part of a series of classes to celebrate the Overlord Embroidery which was made by the RSN from 1968 to 1974. The class is suitable for all levels with beginners welcome.
This simple daisy design is worked mainly in long and short stitch using 5 shades of coloured threads. Helen will show students how to blend these shades together to create the classic 3D appearance of painting with a needle. This class is suitable for those new to the technique and for more experienced stitchers.
The class kit must be bought from the tutor on the day for £25 (cash only) and 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 workshop runs from 10.30am to 4.30pm at The D-Day Story, Clarence Esplanade, Southsea, Hampshire PO5 3NT (please arrive by 10.15am).
