Introduction and Course Content

These NEW Embroidery Short Courses (2 evenings each) aim to introduce you to basic Cross Stitch and Blackwork – two of the best Embroidery stitch techniques to learn or refresh – and to help you make a beautiful piece of Textile Art or Sampler to frame and take home with you.
Students will choose their design among many available patterns – or can bring their own (there are countless small Cross Stitch designs free to download from the internet). Techniques covered may include:
• Alphabet
• Adding colour to design
• Filler patterns
• Borders
Most materials, including worksheets, embroidery canvas needles and haberdashery items will be provided for the course but please bring along your own notebook, pens and pencils. Feel free to bring your own embroidery thread if you have a specific colour scheme in mind. Also included a frame for your piece.
