By popular demand, we bring to you the Introduction to Silk Shading Online Classes. Inspired by the naturalistic flow of art nouveau designs we have developed this kit onto which we will be filling in the traditional silk shading method of long and short stitch, accompanied by split stitch, outline stitch and french knots for the details.

This two part class will take you section by section from creating the fill, to blending the four colours featured, and learning how to get your stitches to flow with the direction of the shape. The first part has been released and is for sale now, with the second part following next week (Friday 2nd April).

The Introduction to silk shading is an entry level class for those who have not tried silk shading before or want to brush up their skills with the basics. We would suggest that it would be ideal if you had done a little general sewing or embroidery before for a good grounding before you attempt this more specialist and unusual skill.So if you’ve completed something like our Introduction to Embroidery Lily and Pomegranate Design, you’re in a great position. As with most of our online classes, there is the option of a mini kit for the materials to accompany the class or the deluxe kit for those who need the equipment too.

For further details and to order your class and kit, pop over to the online classes section.
