Welcome to the Royal School of Needlework The International Centre
of Excellence for the
Art of Hand Embroidery
This beautiful technique, sometimes known as "painting with a needle", uses a number of colours in cotton or silk threads, skillfully blended together to create the natural appearance of a flower, fruit, plant or animal. The technique uses long and short stitches (either in silk or cotton threads or even wool) and the emphasis is on blending colour and understanding tonal shade.
