A series of “Starter Packs” to get you started with the core embroidery techniques that we teach at the RSN. Lizzy Pye has produced this range of packs for us to introduce you to the basic materials needed to start one of four techniques. Blackwork, Whitework, Goldwork and Crewelwork, please note that the Crewelwork Starter Packs contain Renaissance crewel wool skeins and come in assorted colour stories, please make a note on your order if you have a preference.
None of these packs include a pattern to work but are designed for your own experiments using either books or your own ideas, without having to invest in larger quantities of sometimes difficult to get hold of materials. We recommend the following books to help with these techniques including from Lizzy The RSN Essential Stitch Guide to Whitework and Goldwork Embroidery, all techniques can be found in the RSN Book of Embroidery.
