This Introduction to Crewelwork ‘Jacobean Inspired Leaf’ has been designed for the embroiderer who wants to stitch a classic style piece using traditional materials, but isn’t quite ready to undertake the much larger project of a Jacobean Tree of Life.
The creation of this leaf began with a mono-coloured leaf pattern the Tutor found on a cushion cover at her mother’s house. She liked the shape so much that she developed it so that it could translate into an Embroidery. The inspiration for this glorious mix of Autumnal colours popping against the dark grey originated from seeing the autumnal trees against a stormy sky on of her walks around the New Forest.
Using traditional Jacobean materials, this autumnal leaf motif is worked on cotton twill fabric using Appleton's Crewel 2ply wool on an 8in embroidery hoop. Although this design includes the basic Crewel Embroidery stitches of Stem Stitch, Chain Stitch, Fly Stitch and Seed Stitch, the Tutor will also teach you variations of these stitches such as Detached Chain Stitch, Closed Fly Stitch, multi coloured Seed Stitch, Whipped Stem Stitch and Whipped Fly Stitch.
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.
Your Zoom link will be sent a minimum of 48 hours prior to the class and will be sent to the email address you booked the class with. If you do not receive it, check your junk mail to see if it is there and if you still do not have it then please email [email protected]
The class kit will be posted out to you. The kit includes all the materials you require to complete the project. It would be useful to have a pencil and paper in case you wish to take extra notes and a pair of embroidery scissors and an 8″ hoop will be needed.
