This two day course is inspired by a beautiful and charming piece of raised embroidery in the RSN Collection.

You will stitch the “Oak Tree” using traditional approaches where possible. The course will include Wired Shapes, Padded Shapes, Needlelace Stitches, Long and Short Stitch. In addition, you will learn some little known stitches that give an amazing textural finish and are fun to work such as ‘Moss’ Stitch and ‘Chenille’ Stitch. This course will appeal to those who are interested in historical stitch and its modern application along with those who wish to extend their stitch repertoire. 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.
