After two years, I have finished my Certificate in Embroidery with the Royal School of Needlework.

Four embroidery techniques, taught over 8 days of teaching, plus tonnes of homework in between!


First up was Jacobean Crewel work, worked over a two week intensive course.


Next silk shading, a technique I found very difficult to master.


Canvas stitches, great fun to do. I loved working with the colours in this piece.


…and finally Goldwork. A real learning curve and chocked with mistakes, but great to do.

The last two pieces were submitted for assessment a couple of weeks ago and now I’m nervously waiting for the results!

  1. Well done! I’ve just finished my certificate as well in Rugby – have loved doing all the different techniques and now looking forward to starting the Diploma in the autumn.
