Saturday 28 – 29 July, 10am-4pm, join RSN Tutor Auburn Claire Lucas on a two day hand embroidery class, ‘Advanced Elizabethan Stitches: Elizabethan Sweet Pea’ at Exeter Community Centre. This advanced two day class is inspired by a 16th century embroidered panel. Worked on cream linen you will learn traditional Elizabethan embroidery stitches such as plaited braid stitch, blanket stitch, corded detached buttonhole and corded buttonhole variation.
Goldwork: This technique has its history in military, ecclesiastical and royal regalia, but it also creates the most beautiful and dramatic embroideries. Using a wide variety of metal threads, it can be combined with other techniques to produce luxurious effects.
Places are limited to 12 students per class so book now or contact firstname.lastname@example.org : https://www.royal-needlework.org.uk/courses/details/15674
