Raised Embroidery uses an array of different materials and embroidery techniques to tell a contemporary story in stitch using three dimensional elements. Designs can be varied and imaginative, offering scope for a high degree of creativity.

This fun and brightly coloured Flamingo design will introduce you to some of the most commonly used traditional Stumpwork/Raised Embroidery stitches.

The Flamingo is worked on linen using a variety of stitches including Raised Stem Band, Long & Short, French Knots, Stem Stitch, Felt padding, Wrapped wire and Corded Needlelace.

The finished Flamingo measures 8cms in height.

The kit contains everything needed to complete the project:

Instruction booklet, 30 x 30 cm linen with design, 30 x 30cm calico,  Hand dyed Pink variegated Perle cotton by Oliver Twist, Stranded cotton in black, white, maroon & turquoise, Paper cover wire, Embroidery Needle size 10, Tapestry Needle size 22 and Chenille Needle size 22.

There will be plenty of opportunity during the class to ask the Tutor questions and in advance of the class all preparation information will be emailed to you along with an invitation to join the class on the day.
