Crewel Heart is a Crewelwork and Goldwork class, perfect for stitchers moving on from Introduction to Embroidery classes, combining classic Crewelwork stitches, introducing shading and some introductory Goldwork.
During the class we will cover the following stitches: Brick Stitch, Fly Stitch, Trellis Stitch, Van Dyke Stitch, scattered French Knots and Couching. There will also be the opportunity to customise your design by adding in some Chipping or Cutwork in Bright Check Purl.
The design was inspired by the Gothic ceiling in the Tribune Room at Strawberry Hill House, former home of Horace Walpole.
The design will be worked onto a dark blue Irish linen with Appletons Wool, Gilt Passing and Bright Check Purl.
The kit includes a full skein of each of the 6 shades of wool so that you can continue to explore shading after the class. You will also receive full written instructions, fabric with the printed design, needles, beeswax, metal and couching threads as well as a mini velvet board to help cut metal threads.
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.
It would also be useful to have a pencil and paper in case you wish to take extra notes and a pair of embroidery scissors.
