New Classes Coming to Glasgow

It's the start of a new term at the Royal School of Needlework and we're hosting an exciting series of Day Classes in Glasgow over the next few months. We have this charming bird in our Introduction to Embroidery Class. There are also classes in Blackwork, Whitework & Goldwork or delve into the third dimension with a Stumpwork Class. Classes are held at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow where our Tutors will guide you through each technique with enthusiasm and expertise.
Stumpwork or raised embroidery was popular in the 17th century and still works very well with contemporary designs today. The class is suitable for students who have already experienced the basics of Stumpwork and during the class you’ll progress your knowledge and confidence in the technique.

Introduction to Blackwork
In this introduction class you will learn how to work simple patterns and simple shading in order to stitch this  lovely whale tail design.



Introduction to Goldwork
An introductory course which will teach you the basics of Goldwork, carefully guiding you through the various processes to create a dramatic effect using Goldwork threads.

You will learn to pad an area to create extra dimension, along with couching various metal threads and chipping.
