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!
