Canvas work is not all tent stitch and wool! Explore mixing different counted stitches with variegated cotton threads to create interesting and varied effects. Suitable for beginners and those wanting to renew their interest in canvas work.

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 Arnold House, Elsee Road, Rugby, Warwickshire CV21 3BA

Canvaswork is also known as Needlepoint. It is a form of counted embroidery worked on linen canvas, covering the entire surface with a variety of textural stitches.
