Online: Canvas Shading 'Autumn Leaf'

Canvas shading

Royal School of Needlework Online Class

Held over 3 weeks:

Mondays on 13, 20, 27 Nov 2023 7-9pm UK time

£202 includes kit

Progress with canvas shading with this advanced Autumn Leaf, worked on 18hpi canvas. This class will teach you the techniques of advanced canvas shading, and leave you with the knowledge required to then design your own piece.


The kit includes 18hpi mono canvas, with the design transferred by hand onto the fabric,

comprehensive instructions with helpful diagrams and a stitch guide, needle and crewel wool.


Finished leaf design is 15cm wide by 13cm high. This measurement is for the leaf only and doesn't include any background worked. Two hanks of background wool are supplied for you to work as much or as little as you like in your own time. Tent stitch is used throughout to allow the shading itself to take precedence.

The class kit will include everything you require to complete the project. You will need a 8" hoop and fine embroidery scissors and may find a magnifier and lamp useful.
