Our second needlework workshop created especially for the Textile Arts Council. This all day class invites the student to learn a range of stitches and embroidery skills. Inspired by the Rose Bush embroidery kit and the Embroidery and Lace book cover, both designed by May Morris, this kit will guide the stitcher through using English silk and gold thread, to customize a book cover for themselves.
The stitches used are laidwork, long and short stitch, darning stitch, couching, stem stitch and French knots on a linen ground. The book plate can have any title or name stitched in stem stitch and the cover is customized to fit a book of the stitcher’s choice. (Book not included)
Skill level is beginner and above.
