£220 includes kit.
The four Silk & Metal Thread Art Nouveau designs use silk flosses in a range of beautiful colours and metal pearl purl in either gold or silver, worked on a background of ivory duchess satin. Long & short stitch and split stitch will be used, and depending on the design chosen on the day, the pearl purl will be couched down either with a self coloured thread or overstretched and couched with a coloured silk floss as a feature of the design. Silk floss has a lovely sheen to it, which combines beautifully with the metal thread.
Designs to be chosen from are: Tree, Waterlily, Tulips, Rose.
The finished embroidery measures approximately 14cm wide by 14cm high.
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, magnifiers and lights (if needed) on the day.
This class will run from 10am-4pm at 38 The Old School House, Kingswood Estate, Britannia Road, Kingswood, Bristol BS15 8DB. This is a two day class and costs £220 which includes the price of one Art Nouveau tile kit.
