Embroidery Course Discounted at DenmanListed on September 20, 2013 in Offers
Denman are offering a 10% discount if you book a place on Silk Shading Embroidery: Long and Short Stitch with Julie Walsby before Friday 4th October.
Take a break at Denman and let all your stresses drain away as you embroider a rose and leaves in this beautiful stitch. This type of embroidery has been a favourite way of depicting flowers for hundreds of years and you will use a single or a double thread in carefully graded shades of colours to achieve a realistic effect.
Learn the techniques of shading and stitch direction, plus padding of the petals and leaves to give texture and depth to your work. For fun, you may even add an insect, perhaps a butterfly or a spider complete with its web.
Julie Walsby is an experienced tutor who has been embroidering for over 60 years and works as a textile conservator with a particular interest in 17th century Jacobean crewelwork.
If you would like to book a place please ring 01865 391991 quoting discount code: PROMO1013 to receive a 10% discount!
