STITCHING MASTER CLASSES
Having just had a major tidy up of all my stitch and technique records – about time too! – I realised just what a wonderful resource of all the types of needlepoint that I and you as my students enjoy.
As a result I shall be offering a series of Master Classes in some of the most popular subjects. Each day will concentrate on one technique covering a little history and all the known variations. It will also explore good use as repeating patterns, borders for cushions, upholstery (where appropriate) and other ideas. In certain cases my collection of antique material and reference books will be used.
During the day, armed with the specially prepared folder, each student will make stitch records of the patterns and ideas that appeal to them most.
Canvas of the mesh they prefer will be prepared and an exciting range of threads for selection will be include in the class fee. There will be guidance as to what type of thread works well on their Master Class so if they wish to bring some of their own threads that is fine.
The initial Classes will be:
Patterned Darning – Thursday 27th June 2019
A favourite with Victorian young ladies teaching them to repair linens and household goods but all the same remarkably attractive and useful for many occasions to-day. Besides history and the special techniques needed (different from any other I can think of) there will be examples of horizontal, vertical and diagonal patterns, how to look at traditional patterns and execute them in pattern darning and borders.
