'Stitching With Liz & Helen' is a collaboration between two Royal School of Needlework tutors, Liz Tapper & Helen Jones (, to bring the art of needlework to Exeter.We aim to provide classes in a range of techniques and for varying skill levels. Please do get in touch if there's a particular course you would like to see listed.

Learn the basics of Canvas Shading with this pretty Echinacea flower. Using 18hpi canvas and crewel wool in a range of colours and shades, you will learn how to blend the shades to bring the flower to life.

Tent stitch is used throughout to allow the shading itself to take precedence.

The class kit will include everything you require to complete the project. You may like to bring your own embroidery scissors and you will be able to borrow ring frames on the day.

There will be an hour’s break for lunch at 1pm. Coffee, tea and biscuits are included in the class price. There are shops nearby for lunch, but it may be easier to bring a packed lunch.


This is a wonderful opportunity to learn a traditional hand embroidery technique in the relaxing environment of Exeter Community Centre, situated in the lovely city of Exeter.

This class will run from 10am-4pm at Exeter Community Centre, 17 St David's Hill, Exeter EX4 3RG
