This brand new design is being offered exclusively as a class to the RSN (limited to the duration of the course).
Learn contemporary Canvaswork in this interpretation of a bluebell wood at sunset. Try various types of stitch and experiment with a little stitch blending and plenty of shading, all with step by step instruction throughout. The design uses beautiful Renaissance Dyeing crewel wools and two types of DeVere Yarns pure silk threads.
The class is broken into two hour sessions to allow plenty of time to learn and try each part of the design.
Session 1 Saturday 19 September: Large Rice stitch (demonstrate basic stitch, time to try that, then into shading)
Session 2 Saturday 26 September: Large and small rice stitches (demonstrate fitting into the spaces, more shading)
Session 3 Saturday 3 October: Gobelin filling stitch (demonstrate basic stitch and discuss shading)
Session 4 Saturday 10 October: Small rice stitch and large cross stitch
Session 5 Saturday 17 October: Tent stitch shading
Session 6 Saturday 24 October: Encroaching slanted Gobelin variation (demonstrate 2 ways to approach stitch, discuss shading, discuss using silk alone)
The tutor will demonstrate to the group, and also give plenty of individual attention to each student allowing you to develop your embroidery skills. The class is suitable for beginners or stitchers who need a refresher. This class is designed to be a stepping stone towards the RSN Certificate Course.
