This colourful Carousel Horse design combines Silk Shading with Goldwork embroidery techniques. During the class you will be taken through the principles of Long and Short Stitch using it to shade the mane, tail and bridle before adding the outline of the horse in couched metal thread. The saddle is created with metallic kid leather, Chipping and Cutwork all bordered with couched Purl Pearl wire. The horse rests on a twisted pole of Purl Pearl wire and is finished off with tiny sequins and a coloured Purl rosette.
This class is suitable for intermediate and experienced stitchers.
The class kit will be posted out to you. Everything you need will be included in your kit, but you will need to provide an 8” embroidery hoop and embroidery scissors. This is a counted technique and you’ll be working on a 28ct even weave fabric, so you may want to use an magnifier and extra lighting.
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. Your kit includes everything you need including a full colour, step by step instruction booklet. The only things you’ll need are an 8” ring frame and embroidery scissors.It would be useful to have a pencil and paper in case you wish to take extra notes.
