Learn to create this stumpwork and metal thread panel depicting one of the world’s most loved and characterful little birds.
We will use felt padding to create the domed form before exploring a wide range of materials and techniques to capture the detail of the bird and the surrounding landscape of sea and clifftop.
We will study ‘or nue’ (the process of creating images using carefully placed coloured couching stitches over metal threads), use of silk gimp and fettuccine braids, cut purl work, silk shading, mesh ribbons and chenilles.
For this class you will need to purchase a project kit containing all fabrics, threads and needles required, plus fully illustrated instruction manual. The cost is £95.
