'Stitching With Liz & Helen' is a collaboration between two Royal School of Needlework tutors, Liz Tapper & Helen Jones (www.stitchwork.co.uk), to bring the art of needlework to Exeter. We aim to provide classes in a range of techniques and for varying skill levels. Please do get in touch if there's a particular course you would like to see listed.
Behind every beautiful piece of embroidery is a lot of thinking, planning, sampling and adaptation. This day will consist of lots of preparatory exercises which contribute to a successful embroidery. We will look at relating images to particular embroidery techniques - what might work, what might not; dealing with the "I can't draw" factor, creating stitch plans and informative working drawings - colour and black and white. Suitable for all levels.
The materials will include everything you require to complete the project. You will need to bring your own embroidery scissors and you will be able to borrow ring frames on the day.
Please bring a magnifier and light (if needed).
This class will run from 10.30am-4.00pm at Exeter Community Centre, 17 St David's Hill, Exeter EX4 3RG, with half an hour for lunch.
