RSN Tutor, Helen Stevens will be teaching a bespoke Appliqué embroidery class at The D-Day Story on Friday 22 October 2021 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.
The class will adhere to current Covid-19 guidelines and the venue has undertaken a comprehensive risk assessment. The museum has achieved the Visit Britain 'Good to go' standard.
This stunning Anemone design features the same techniques used in the Overlord Embroidery panels. Vibrant layers of deep lilac and fuchsia silk dupion appliqued with couching stitches are used in combination with straight stitches to create the highlights and depths of the Anemone is the same way as used in the large panels.
In this class you will create additional surface stitches of long and short, stem stitch, french knots and the use of chenille thread and beads add the details. Helen designed this Anemone de Caen flower motif as the city of Caen in Normandy played a major part in the D-Day offensive
Your class kit (included in the cost of the course) 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.
