Class Dates: Saturday 7 & Sunday 8 April 2018

This two day class builds on the basic technique of silk shading. When working from an image it is important to identify both colour and angle to recreate a realistic piece of embroidery. This class will start with how to transfer the design onto fabric and how to identify colours in an image. The class will also look at the importance of turn overs and how they help create dimension.

The class kit will include everything you require to complete the project. You may like to bring your own embroidery scissors and you will be able to borrow ring frames, magnifiers and lights (if needed) on the day.

This class will run from 10am-4pm at Hampton Court Palace, East Molesey, Surrey KT8 9AU

Silk Shading
Also known as ‘painting with a needle’, this beautiful technique uses a number
of colours in cotton, skillfully blended together to create the natural appearance of a flower, fruit, plant or animal.
