In this three session online ‘Silk and Metal thread embroidery’ course join master embroiderer Becky Hogg 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 each session Becky will guide you through the project with step by step demonstrations and images which can also be viewed after the lesson enabling you to work at your own pace.
Feedback will be given during the class but can also be given via a specifically set up WhatsApp group allowing the tutor to see images of your progress.
Once you have made your booking, please purchase your kit here. Bookings close 2 weeks before the first session, or 4 weeks for those outside the UK, to allow for postage. Your kit includes all materials and an illustrated step by step instruction booklet. The only things you’ll need are a 6” or 8″ ring frame, embroidery scissors and a stiletto or awl. It would be useful to have a pencil and paper in case you wish to take extra notes.
The Zoom links will be emailed to you approximately 1 week prior to the 1st session.
