Spend a delightful day doing the garden without getting your hands dirty!
By combining Stumpwork, Raised and Surface embroidery techniques, you will grow your own tiny vegetable garden. Your finished vegetable patch could be used for a pincushion or needlecase. Some experience of surface embroidery would be helpful for this class and enable you to achieve as much as possible during the day. Stitches covered during this fun filled day include, Raised Leaf Stitch, Detached Buttonhole Stitch, Wrapped beads and wire, Ribbon Embroidery and Needlewoven Picots. These will be demonstrated after which you will have time to practice and miraculously produce some vegetables.
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 Hampton Court Palace, East Molesey, Surrey KT8 9AU.
