Summer Wreath is a colourful design inspired by hot, dusty walks through cornfields in the height of Summer. Poppies, wheat and cornflowers intertwine to create a gentle circle and are completed in a range of well-known and more unusual stitches in silk threads on pale grey linen. This class is aimed at stitchers who already have some experience of Silk Shading, or have perhaps already completed one of the other Wreath kits.
The class will develop your skill in silk shading whilst introducing you to a range of familiar and less familiar surface embroidery stitches. It is worked in pure silk Soie d’Alger from Au Ver A Soie on the highest quality light grey Belgian linen. It is aimed at stitchers who have some experience of Silk Shading or have perhaps already completed one of the other kits in the range.
The stitches covered are: Starting and Finishing your thread; Split Stitch; French Knots; Wheat Ear Stitch; Stem Stitch; Detached Chain Stitch; Silk Shading; Padded Satin Stitch; Pistil Stitch and Trellis Stitch.
The design is worked in a bright, contrasting colour palette of reds, blues, golds and greens which effectively conjure up a Summer cornfield. It would make a lovely picture to frame, or work equally well transferred to household linens such as tablecloths or napkins.
The finished size of the embroidery is approximately 15 cm in diameter.
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.
