Bargello beat box - stitch florentine flames

Beat Boxes (image Stacey Grant)

About the Course

Bargello stitching also known as Florentine, creates great flame like designs that look just as much at home in modern interiors as traditional country piles.

This workshop will introduce you to 6 different bargello patterns which we stitch on plastic canvas and turn into your own "beat box". As well as looking super cool the box will become an aide memoir for your future bargello stitch projects.

Suitable for beginners and experienced stitchers alike this workshop is a great way to create something that is both useful and also an ornament. The resulting cube is 13cm square.

Tina Francis is a tapestry needlepoint and textile artist whose work is exhibited around the UK, she runs Tina Francis Tapestry which produces kits and homewares with stitching at their heart.
