The rainbow is a wonderful symbol of hope in the United Kingdom, especially during these challenging times. This online Introduction to Embroidery class is suitable for anyone, even if you have never picked up a needle before.
When complete the rainbow can be kept in its hoop to display. Demonstrate your support for our wonderful key workers by displaying it in your window.
Students will learn the basics of hand embroidery working with brightly coloured stranded cotton on a blue cotton fabric to create the rainbow design. The class will cover how to start and finish threads neatly as well as several commonly used embroidery stitches including Chain Stitch, Whipped Chain Stitch, Stem Stitch, French Knots, Buttonhole Stitch and Couching.
The finished rainbow measures 9cm x 5.5cm (WxH)
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.
The class kit will be posted out to you. The kit includes all the materials you require to complete the project including a 6” hand held hoop. It would be useful to have a pencil and paper in case you wish to take extra notes and a pair of embroidery scissors will be needed.
This class will run online on Thursday 14 May from 10am-4pm with a 15-minute break in the morning and afternoon, plus an hour for lunch.
Bookings for this class will close on at 5pm on Thursday 7 May to allow for the kit to be posted out in time for the class.
