'Stitching With Liz & Helen' is a collaboration between two Royal School of Needlework tutors, Liz Tapper & Helen Jones (www.stitchwork.co.uk), 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 goldwork couching and chips.

The design can be used later in the Box Construction class.

This goldwork class will introduce you to some basic goldwork techniques. You will

learn how to apply padding using felt, how to work with and couch two

different types of gold thread and how to use cutwork.

The goldwork kits for this class cost £35 each and include all materials required. You will need to bring embroidery scissors and pins. Tweezers, a thimble, needle threader,

magnifier and daylight lamp may also be useful.

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.
