Also known as ‘painting with a needle’, this beautiful technique uses a number of colors in cotton, skillfully blended together to create the natural appearance of a flower, fruit, plant or animal.
This Back to Basics class you will give you an understanding of the principles of Silk Shading or painting with the needle. This technique involves just one stitch – long and short –
During this class you will work a series of samples to help you understand the essentials of long and short and giving you a chance to get to grips with this technique. Day two will then provide the chance to put these principles into practice and begin a silk shading design.
Some previous embroidery experience would be helpful for this class, but is not essential. Beginners are welcome.
The class kit will include everything you require to complete the project.
This class will run for 3 hours from 10:00 - 1:00 PM
