Whitework Embroidery Workshop

The course will cover many of the whitework hand embroidery techniques that are so interesting and lovely to work. It will be a combination of counted thread and surface hand embroidery covering Schwalm embroidery, Snutki, Mountmellick, Embroidery Anglaise and Portuguese Embroidery. You will have designs to choose from to try one of the techniques, or you can opt to make a sample of each one!

Led by: Annette Bolton

Please arrive by 6pm on Monday. Course ends with lunch on Wednesday.

This course, suitable for all abilities, will be led by gifted Textile and Bead Artist Annette Bolton and focus on Whitework Embroidery, i.e. hand embroidery worked in white threads onto white or cream background.
