Canvaswork or Crewel Embroidery
with Sue Hawkins

April 13th - 15th  2018               Highfield Park              £380

Sue is the author of several needlework books and sells her own 'Needleworks' kits drawing inspiration from 17thC antique English embroidery. If you choose canvaswork, you can forget acres of boring tent stitch, Sue’s canvaswork is something else! Lots of different stitches counted onto canvas. Stitches & colours combine to make exquisite needle workers' accessories. For those who choose crewel, it is one of the oldest of needle arts, but actually much easier than you might think. Explore stitching without charts or holes in the fabric to count. You will learn simple techniques that will enable you to paint with your needle. Learn basic stitches, and soft shading and then the wide variety of crewel stitches will open to you. Sue’s unique ‘Elizabethan’ embroidery frames will be available for you to try over the weekend. Materials for one project will be included.
