3613 - Elizabethan Animal Series
22 Mar 2020: 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
The inspiration for this workshop has come from my love of embroideries of animals and plants of the Elizabethan period. The embroideries are stitched in gumnut yarn “stars” silk threads on 55 count Kingston linen.
This workshop is aimed at teaching you the complexities of stitching animals and learning to shape them so they look three dimensional and life like using needle lace. The first day of the workshop is covering all techniques required to work the animal panels on a sample and the next day choosing and working on the animal of choice. This piece can be framed, put into the lid of a box or made into a small box.
Stitches used are Chain, whipped chain, buttonhole, detached buttonhole, satin & Turkey stitch. Each design is 10.5cm x 3.5cm.
SKILL LEVEL – intermediate (some experience with detached buttonhole)
