Learn how to create this beautiful motif based upon the Esther and Ahaseurus Raised Embroidery Panel stitched in approximately 1640. The RSN design is based on a section of the intricate panel showing a bird flying around a tree under sun rays and beautiful sparkling cloud.

During the class, RSN Tutor, Matthew Cayton will teach you hand embroidery techniques including, Padding, Goldwork, Surface Stitching and Textural Couching. Some experience of embroidery would be useful but all aspects of the design will be covered during the class and a full instruction booklet will be included in the kit to enable you to complete the design at home. This class is suitable for beginners and more experienced stitchers.
The class cost includes all materials and necessary equipment and your kit comprises everything you require to complete the project.
