'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.

Shadow Work was originally a whitework technique, but has since been used with coloured threads on white organza to create the effect of muted design areas using basic embroidery stitches, hence the term 'shadow'. 

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, one of many under the umbrella of whitework, in the relaxing environment of Exeter Community Centre, situated in the lovely city of Exeter.
