Raised work embroidery with Helen Jones

Try the ever-popular embroidery technique of raised work with Royal School of Needlework tutor Helen Jones

  • Booking essential

Raised work is a term used for a style of embroidery which was very popular in the latter part of the 17th century. A variety of techniques and much imagination were used to create three dimensional work. These days we can employ the old techniques and combine them with contemporary ideas and materials.

This one day course will focus on one technique in particular, a wired shape. It will also include wrapped wires and the use of silk wrapped purls. The workshop kit includes fabric, other materials, thread, needles and instructions. Seat embroidery frames and embroidery scissors will be available for the workshop and at the end of the day you will have learnt everything necessary to finish the piece at home.
