On Friday 5th October, we have a new silk shading course taking place where we will be working on this gorgeous honeysuckle design. This technique, sometimes known as ‘painting in stitches’ allows you to create fades and colour changes through the body of the embroidery by working with multiple threads. This is particularly useful for natural forms such as flowers, fruit and animals which, once mastered, can give a very realistic effect to the embroidery.
Notice how delicately the colours change through the flower to give depth to the petals.
The class will also include french knot buds, because you can never have too many french knots.
