Time for tea – a strawberry ribbon tea cosy
June 2 @ 9:30 am - June 9 @ 3:00 pm
This is a two-day class (Saturday 2nd June and Saturday 9th June) in silk ribbon embroidery, which is an old art form. Its often elegant appearance belies its simplicity. Exquisitely beautiful pieces can be created with the simplest of stitches. This tea cosy, with its black woollen background enhanced by bright and cheerful Colour Streams ribbons, uses simple stitches in a very different way.
$120.00 members; $140.00 non-members
Class kit cost
$60.00 (to be paid to the tutor on the first day of the class) – includes woollen fabric, lining, ribbon, threads and needles
Other requirements to bring to class
A frame (minimum of 20 cm in diameter), or a stand if preferred; small, sharp embroidery scissors; a pincushion (in which to park needles); a laying tool or an extra large needle.
