Have fun creating your own design, inspired by traditional crewelwork patterns from stylised plant forms and flowers. A range of motifs will be available to use or further adapt, with plenty of help on the day. Working with embroidery threads on natural linen, learn to combine a number of decorative stitches, together with silk shading techniques. The tutor will provide fabric and a range of threads.
