Embroidery - Level 1

Course description

During this course students will be introduced to a variety of hand embroidery styles including ribbon-work, cut-work, shadow-work, stump-work and Indian mirror-work.

Starting with a simple running stitch, laced running stitch, whipped running stitch and back stitch, by the end of the first day we will have progressed to more complicated techniques such as French knots which can be used to attach sequins; whipped spiderweb; woven spiderweb and a needle-woven ribbon rose.

Other stitches taught on this course include:

  • chain stitch, blanket and buttonhole stitch
  • daisy stitch, stem stitch and couching
  • cross stitch, star stitch and herringbone
  • reverse herringbone for shadow-work
  • overcast stitch for cut-work
  • ribbon stitch for silk ribbon flowers
  • long and short satin stitch for thread painting
  • raised satin stitch for stump-work
  • fly stitch, feather and bullion stitch

Whilst creating several small embroidered pieces that could be made into gifts, used in accessory design or shown as part of a textile design portfolio, students will leave this course with a broad repertoire of embroidery styles and stitches, and the confidence to teach themselves more.
