An exciting course exploring the beautiful and fascinating 16th century raised embroidery technique known as Stumpwork. The theme would be based on flowers and will cover many different and varied hand embroidery stitches, as well as an emphasis on needlelace. We will be using fine threads, with the addition of gold beads, fabric, sequins and threads, and other embellishments. Inspiration will be taken from a variety of sources, including historical Stumpwork pieces, books, pictures etc.
This course will be suitable for all abilities, including beginners.
