About the Course

Learn the basics of canvas work embroidery in a knot garden inspired design at the Heritage Skills Centre at Lincoln Castle.

We will look at the historical designs of these beautiful gardens and learn some 3 dimensional stitches to bring your stitched gardens to life!

Suitable for those new to canvas work embroidery or those interested in design.

Tutor: Sarah Homfray

Award-winning embroiderer, artist and author Sarah became interested in hand embroidery much later in life. She was awarded a place on a prestigious three year Royal School of Needlework Apprenticeship programme, going on to achieve a Diploma in Fine Art at the Cyprus College of Art and gain a Certificate in Education from the University of Greenwich and North Kent College.

Sarah is the author of "The Royal School of Needlework - Essential Stitch Guide to Silk Shading," and contributor to 'Embroidery: A Maker's Guide" for the V&A Museum. She was part of the team of embroiderers that worked on The Duchess of Cambridge's wedding dress in 2011 and made the replica Standard of the 105th Regiment for the Battle of Waterloo commemorations in 2015.
