The Taster Day is an introduction to the techniques of stumpwork. Designed for students of mixed ability, the day gives clear objectives that are achievable and inspiring to novices and experienced needleworkers alike.
Students will have a chance to find out about the history and development of stumpwork from the endeavours of Queen Elizabeth I to 21st century modern sculptors.
Using tried and tested techniques, the taster day can be a springboard session to a more in-depth piece of work.
Beginners to stitching are most welcome. With guidance and clear tuition, novices to needlework will achieve an understanding of the skills involved. More experienced embroiderers will be encouraged to develop new ideas and creative skills.
Taster Days run from 10.00 am – 4.00 pm
Work shop includes worksheets, stitching pads, wire and stuffing.
I can accommodate 4 students in my workroom. I have numerous books, materials and threads to hand. A light lunch is provided.
If you require a visit to your own venue there will be an additional charge for travel. Up to six students is a goodly number to work with.
What to bring to a Taster Day:
Magnifying glasses or free standing magnifying glass
