Hand Embroidery Short Course

NEW Evening Class: learn essential Hand Embroidery techniques in a creative and imaginative way

Tutor

Richard McVetis

Duration

Tuition Fee

£45 (some materials included in the fee, see below)

Introduction and Course Content

For this NEW course, artist Richard McVetis draws on his love of stitching, paying special attention to time, labour and care in the making of Embroidery pieces.

This workshop will explore a combination of traditional Hand Embroidery techniques, how you do it and why you do it. We will explore the tenderness; the slowness and rhythms of hand stitching; the versatility and strengths of embroidery for drawing and mark making; and the pleasure in having time to make.

This is an experimental approach to stitching and draws on the imagination of each participant: create textures and patterns, work a stitch in different threads changing its scale and spacing, work freely, and combine stitches to mark make and draw.

Practical help will be given by demonstrating the many ways in which this can be achieved using the simplest of hand embroidery techniques, no knowledge of particular and precise embroidery techniques are needed. The emphasis will be on both group and individual tuition.

We will learn the following stitches: Running, Back, Straight, Couching, Whipped Running, Seeding, Stem, Fly, Blanket and Chain.

Objectives:

-To develop traditional Hand Embroidery skills
-To translate your own thoughts and inspiration into stitch
-To develop an understanding of embroidery as a contemporary art medium

Entry Requirements

This course is suitable for adult learners (18+) with basic hand stitch experience. Beginners are also very welcome.
