Starting with a simple Tent Stitch, you will experiment with a selection of canvases and tapestry threads as you progress to more complicated techniques such as Mosaic, Parisian and Renaissance Stitch. You will learn how to create raised velvety surfaces with Loop Stitch attach beads for Victorian Beadpoint; Shisha mirrors for a more eclectic 'on trend' look.

With a choice of transfer images specifically designed to fit the pattern for your kiss-clasp purse frame, you will learn how to use the colour wheel as you choose the threads for your final piece. You will learn how to block and steam your work back into shape once embroidered; stitch your purse fabrics together, insert a lining and attach your kiss-clasp frame.  No Previous experience is needed for this course.
