Learn the key techniques of this fascinating form of three-dimensional embroidery whose origins lie in the 17th century. Students may choose from two designs: a tiny Christmas fairy or a snowdrop. Techniques include working wired shapes using needlelace and silk shading, wrapped wires and beads, and in the case of the fairy, a tiny embroidered face and a wired fringe fir branch.

You will be able to complete the majority of your chosen design over the two-day course and will be confident to complete the piece at home. Suitable for all levels of embroidery experience, you will be provided with a full working kit including all the many materials, threads, beads and wires required to complete your design. This also includes a highly comprehensive illustrated instruction manual.

Includes a light lunch and refreshments.
