What you will do

7 hour class

Daytime

Jacobean embroidery is a traditional English embroidery. It has been enjoyed and practised for many centuries in UK and beyond. The charm of its design with its famous tree of life, hillocks, flora and fauna style, colours and quality of the materials and its strength and durability for interior decoration (such as cushions, fire screens, furniture, bed covers and curtains) have assured its popularity to the present day.

On the day, participants will embroider this design using traditional Jacobean linen twill, Appleton English wool on a 10 inch embroidery hoop.

On completion of the class participants will confidently be able to:

– Learn a number of decorative hand embroidery stitches including – Split stitch, plain/slanted and padded satin stitch, basic long and short stitch, chain, stem, herringbone, laid work, French knots, seeding, cross stitch and many more if students so wish.

– Learn how to plan and transfer a design onto fabric ready for the embroidery stitches

– Have picked up some ‘insider’ tips and tricks from a master craft person.

– Feel inspired to embark on your own embroidery designs!

Our classes are friendly, and are run by a professional specialist master embroiderer, tutor Bella Lane.

In Europe, embroidery was a status symbol. The use of a needle and thread in order to sew patterns on fabric was a sign of wealth and prosperity. It was considered a woman's work. Many royal and noble ladies spent hours embroidering. They embroidered everything, from tapestries to coats.

I attended Bella’s wonderful embroidery workshop which I found to be one of the best workshops on embroidery that I've attended – it far exceeded my expectations. There were lots of demos, one to one support and feedback. I learnt so much on the day. There was a lot of thought and care taken to put together the high-quality kit and instructions. I enjoyed myself on the day – the hours flew by. I will look out for future workshops from Bella.
