Crewelwork workshop with Sara DennisFarfield Mill | Garsdale Road | LA10 5LW
May 19 @ 10:00 am - May 20 @ 4:00 pm
You will learn a variety of Jacobean stitches using Appleton’s crewel wool. This technique enjoys an element of fantasy with pink animals, blue trees and purple landscapes; so stitches combine with outrageous colours to create weird and wonderful dioramas. As a twist on the traditional I also incorporate designs using established stitches with monochromes; you can decide. Stitches include: stem stitch, split stitch, varieties of back stitch, satin stitch, fly stitch, chain stitch, buttonhole stitch, trellis, French knots, pistils, seeding, and couching.
