'Stitching With Liz & Helen' is a collaboration between two Royal School of Needlework tutors, Liz Tapper & Helen Jones (, 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.

Learn a new skill, refresh some old skills.  Do either or both on this one day Introduction to Embroidery course.   Working on linen you will use stranded threads to work linear and individual stitches.  You will learn how to embellish one stitch to create a new one.  Finally, you will use a goldwork technique to apply a gold metallic thread to give the design it’s finishing touch.  

There will be an hour’s break for lunch at 1pm. Coffee, tea and biscuits are included in the class price. There are cafes and shops nearby for lunch, but it may be easier to bring a packed lunch.


This is a wonderful opportunity to learn a traditional hand embroidery technique in the relaxing environment of Exeter Community Centre, situated in the lovely city of Exeter.

This class will run from 10am-4pm at Exeter Community Centre, 17 St David's Hill, Exeter EX4 3RG
