Bespoke Embroidery: Inspired by 1700s Embroidered Waistcoat
This class is inspired by a woman’s linen waistcoat embroidered with a design of branches, birds and flowers worked in red, blue, green and brown threads, edged with mossy cotton fringe, 1700s.
During the day, Royal School of Needlework Tutor Kate Barlow will demonstrate simple stitches to create the embroidered motifs. You will work stem stitch, chain stitch, long and short and french knots in stranded thread on linen fabric to reproduce this delightful bird with flowers.
Saturday 17 August, 10am-4pm. Tickets £84, available from the Royal School of Needlework website at https://royal-needlework.org.uk/
