Raised Embroidery and Stumpwork at Morley College

Sat 20th - Sun 21st November @10-4pm each day

This workshop is at Morley College, Waterloo Center.


Join Pollock's Toy Museum curator, Debby Brown, at Morley College and explore 3 dimensional Stumpwork stitchery, to create exciting off-the-surface wired, padded and embellished embroideries. Be inspired by historical and contemporary examples to stitch your own richly decorated piece. Choose a seasonal nature themed embroidery, or make a small shaped piece to create a unique textile brooch, or Christmas tree decoration. Add sparkle and lustre with specialist metallic goldwork wires.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Learn how to raise the basic embroidery stitches to create 3D effects.

  • Discover how to create separate wired and padded embroidery shapes and ‘slips’.

  • Discover how to apply special goldwork wires, sequins, beads and other embellishments.

  • Mount and finish techniques. Instruction sheets and suppliers list provided.

For 19 years and above. £100 or £75 concession.
