This course is for those who have a little experience stitching, and would like to try some new techniques. Techniques covered will include blackwork, ribbon-work, Mountmellick embroidery and more.

As well as learning the stitches involved in each technique, we will look at the history and traditional designs associated with each one. We will be using a wide range of materials to cover each of these techniques. These materials can be purchased from Alice at the first class at a cost of €15.

Introduction to techniques and samples, Blackwork – basics of counted stitches and shading, Ribbonwork – flowers (woven wheel, gathered) and french knots, ribbon stitch, Mountmellick – knotted stitches (knotted stem, coral knot, Palestrina) and padded satin, mountmellick stitch, Needleweaving – basic even, double, uneven and more complex patterns. Finally, finishing samples and where to go from here.
