‘Dazzling Miss Daisy’ with Angela Bishop

Saturday, 6 July @ 9:30 am


Saturday 6 July and Sunday 7 July 9.30 am – 3.30 pm

In this two day class you will be taught traditional stitch techniques which will enable you to work draped fabrics, realistic hair, and coordinating jewellery. This 1920s inspired sparkling embroidery uses Tapestry Shading stitch techniques and interesting threads, to work a softly shaded gown onto this elegant figure. Her outfit is complemented by a beautifully textured wrap and sparkling jewellery, all stitched onto a fine linen background. You will learn metal thread techniques using sparkling silver threads, as you then stitch Mis Daisy’s beautiful jewellery.

Our experienced visiting international tutor, Angela Bishop, has trained at the Royal School of Needlework and is author of the book ‘Figure Work in Embroidery’. This will be your only opportunity to take a class in Queensland with Angela.
