Capture Spring with this lovely Bluebell picture.

Your finished embroidery will measure 4 x 4 " (10.5cm square)

Embroidered Bluebell Picture Workshop £65

  • Your pretty picture is created by first of all painting calico with fabric paint and using Indian wooden block to stamp a few leaves and seed heads.

    Whilst the calico dries we will create our individual bluebells. These are stitched onto multiple layers of synthetic organza and cut out with a soldering iron.

    We will then add texture to the background by doing some free motion stitching over a little merino/Wensleydale wool. The stem of the bluebell will be made from silk which is bonded to the calico.

    The bluebells are then machine stitched to the calico. A cardboard mount will set off your picture so that it's all ready for you to frame it when you get home.

    The patterns will be provided for the bluebells and each step will be carefully explained and demonstrated. The tecniques you learn will enable you to create further picturs of your own designs at home.

    This course is for people who are confident with free motion embroidery.
