Silke learned embroidery from scratch in the Master Needle Artisan correspondence course for 4 years. As a textile designer, she was of course a bit “biased”, but she always assured us that she learned an incredible amount during the training.
We agree, it’s great to see her beautiful work. Even the simplest sampler becomes a small work of art.
Have fun watching!
Pulled and Drawn Thread work, Blackwork – beautiful sample pieces that inspire with their variety.
In the 2nd lesson there was a lot to tease, 3 small preliminary projects had to be worked on: Assisi, Colbert embroidery and a composition of these techniques in combination with cross stitch. There are also exercises in blackwork.
So many stitches, so many threads, so many options – which is the best, where to start – the decision is almost impossible!
Whitework is tradition pure – but does that mean it has to be boring? Certainly not!
Stumpwork and ribbon embroidery are as fun as they were hundreds of years ago. Only the motives are a bit different. As usual, there are a few exercises on both topics.
