This course has already taken place.

Steeped in history, this technique involves using intricate patterns which have an almost graphic quality to create an embroidered picture. Using a counted thread technique with a variety of geometric stitches in one colour, dramatic effects are created which are particularly effective with portraits and architectural themes. Blackwork s a very diverse technique and can offer limitless opportunities for progression. 
On this one-day course you will stitch this design taken from a penguin book cover. Some previous embroidery experience would be an advantage for this class.
A kit of materials including the design, instructions and all the materials needed for the class will be provided at a cost of £22.40
