Course dates: 7th, 14th and 21st June / 2pm – 4.30pm
In this three session online ‘Silk and Metal thread embroidery’ course join Becky to create the iconic Strawberry Thief thrush from one of Morris’s most popular designs.
Embroidered in a variety of silk wrapped purls, fine wire purls and glossy cords, discover how to work with these specialist threads to produce texture and decorative surfaces.
Learn how to make your own piece of the pattern and finish it off with a freshly stolen strawberry to complete the design!
During the 3 Zoom sessions Becky will guide you step by step through this project using a mixture of live demonstrations, videos and images to equip you with all you need for the best results. In addition, a specific WhatsApp group will be set up enabling a live chat in, and after each session. Here, images can also be uploaded of ‘work in progress’ where Becky can give instant feedback and advice. Videos can also be viewed after the sessions enabling you to work at your own pace.
