RSN Tutor, Helen Jones will be teaching a bespoke Appliqué embroidery class at The D-Day Story Museum on Friday 22 March 2019 as part of a series of classes inspired by the Overlord Embroidery, which the RSN made from 1968 to 1974. The class is suitable for all levels with beginners welcome.
The Overlord Embroidery is worked in a technique known as Appliqué which involves layering different fabrics and embellishing them with a variety of stitches. Using the “Les Braves” Memorial at Omaha Beach as inspiration, Helen’s one day Appliqué class will include some of the techniques and stitches used in the Overlord including Layered fabrics, Padding, Couched threads, Applied cord and French Knots. As part of the class, Helen will give students a Prick & Pounce demonstration. You will also have an opportunity to view the Overlord Embroidery during the day.
The class kit must be bought from the tutor on the day for £25 (cash only) and 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.
The workshop runs from 10.45am to 4.45pm at The D-Day Story, Clarence Esplanade, Southsea, Hampshire PO5 3NT (please arrive by 10.30am).
