Stumpwork (Raised Embroidery)

See examples of Stumpwork

Stumpwork, also known as raised embroidery uses an array of different materials and embroidery techniques to tell a contemporary story in stitch using three dimensional elements. Techniques include silk work, goldwork, counted  work, flat & raised stitching, bead work, padding and needlelace.  Stumpwork designs are varied and imaginative offering scope for a high degree of creativeness.

We run Stumpwork Classes and recommend our book RSN Essential Stitch Guide-Stumpwork by RSN Tutor Kate Sinton
