Course description
Do you know your lazy daisy from your chain stitch? Spend a relaxing few hours working at your own pace to learn a variety of stitches. Embroidery has a variety of applications, from customizing clothes to creating your own artwork.
During this course students will be introduced to a variety of hand embroidery stitches.
Starting with a simple running stitch, laced running stitch, whipped running stitch and back stitch, by the end of the first week we will have progressed to more complicated techniques such as French knots which can be used to attach sequins; a whipped spiderweb, a woven spiderweb and a needle-woven ribbon rose.
