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