Kit You will have the choice of the four animals for this workshop, the hare and squirrel being the least complex and deer and camel the more complex. Paperwork is very detailed and once you have worked one of the animals you will be able to work through all if you choose. Maree will print two animal panels to a linen, one linen having the camel and squirrel and the other having the deer and hare. There will be enough thread in the kit to do all panels and you will choose the animal you feel more comfortable working on the day.: NZD $85 (Pay to tutor)
Spaces Available: 0

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)
