March 15th and 16th - Little Row of Houses with Jenny Adin-Christie
This will be a 2 day course over a Friday and Saturday. It will be held in St Lawrence's Parish Hall, next to the Quaker Meeting House.
Inspired by the intricate raised embroidery scenes of the 17th century, which included many depictions of contemporary buildings, create a miniature scene of cottages beside the sea! The project is designed as a sampler and will teach a broad range of techniques suitable for creating stumpwork scenes, some stitches and threads closely resembling those seen in 17th century pieces, others adding a new element using lovely materials available today.
Cost of the kit will be £42.50.
Jenny has not taught in Winchester since 2015 so her course is proving very popular. Please contact Embroidery Now to be added to an Interested Party list. 10 people will be drawn randomly from this list on February 14th and offered a place on the course. Further draws will take place if any of the initial 10 are unable to attend.
