'Flower Garden' Beginners Crewelwork Online Embroidery Class - March 2021
20th and 21st March 2021
9.30am to 12.30pm (GMT)
Join me online for two mornings in March to learn how to stitch a variety of surface stitches in beautiful, vibrant Renaissance Dyeing crewel wools.
Stitches: stem stitch, laid work, whipped back stitch, split stitch, satin stitch, woven wheels, French knots, pistil stitch, bullion knots and detached chain stitch.
I will send you a kit (included in the price) in time for the class, with all the materials you need and the design printed on the fabric.
Short videos of the techniques will be made available to you after the class to allow you to continue in your own time, and I give email support between sessions and after the class.
Places on this class are limited to eight, to ensure I have enough time to give each student plenty of individual attention.
I also like to create a Facebook group for students to keep in touch between sessions, which can be a source of encouragement and support (who doesn't need more like-minded friends at the moment?)
I have always felt it is so important to be able to stitch in a comfortable, friendly environment and I'm proud to say that my online classes have proved to have just as lovely an atmosphere. You can be sure of a fun, relaxed time alongside detailed, informative tuition.
Booking closes 19th February
The class is for you if you are just starting out with embroidery. Crewel wool is lovely to work with, and is quite forgiving so it hides little beginner flaws well! There are also enough stitches in this kit to suit you if you have a little embroidery under your belt but you want to hone your technique with some help from an expert. It is designed so that you can try each stitch independently, and the class is held over two sessions so there is a little time in between to practice and think of questions.
If you have already purchased this kit to work yourself, but you would like to join the class, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will deduct the cost of the kit from the class price.
In the kit you get full instructions for each stitch, with tips on how to achieve the best results.
Kit contains: linen fabric, calico backing, crewel wool, needles, design and full instructions.
A little background on the technique:
Crewelwork is a form of surface embroidery worked with crewel wool, a 2 ply yarn. It can include a huge range of stitches and can be worked in any style. You can read more about crewelwork here.
