Crewel/Jacobean Embroidery Workshop



Crewel embroidery, also known as Jacobean embroidery, has been practiced for centuries and remains a beautiful and practical craft used to adorn clothing, bags, boxes and much more.  Traditionally worked in crewel wool thread, we will also look at modern threads and how they can be used to great effect. 

This one day workshop will include:

Outline stitches
Filling stitches for both large and small sections
Stitch combinations
Thread painting for shading and colour blending
Design ideas and inspiration

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

Everything you need is included on the day. Tuition, handout pack and patterns are included and there's always a generous slice of homemade cake to keep you fuelled during the day 😊
