Discovering Hardanger – Day 1

March 16 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

This is a two-day class to be held on Saturday 16 March (Day 1) and Saturday 30 March (Day 2).

Students will focus on the various basic techniques used in Hardanger Embroidery – such as gridding preparation, satin stitch, kloster blocks and buttonhole edging. On the second day, students will delve into needleweaving including woven bars and dove’s eyes. Students will gain the knowledge to interpret and adapt commercial patterns.

The class is designed for those who have not undertaken any Hardanger embroidery but knowledge of basic embroidery terms and an appreciation of counted thread embroidery will be an advantage.

Students will complete a small pillow which could be attached to a scarf cuff but would be equally attractive as a scissor fob.
