Mini Hardanger Christmas Sampler

October 29 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

This 2-day class is designed to be an initial journey into Hardanger Embroidery and will be held on Saturday, 29 October and Saturday, 5 November, 2022.

Attendance on  29 October (Day 1) is essential in order to attend 5 November (Day 2).

Students will explore basic techniques – such as preparation gridding, satin stitch including kloster blocks, eyelets and cable stitch. On the second day, students will delve into needleweaving including woven bars and dove’s eyes. A small amount of cross stitch is included in the design and some metallic thread is used to give a festive look.

Students will commence the embroidery for a small sampler suitable as a wall hanging (28cm x 10cm) and some additional sewing is required to complete the panel.

The class is designed for those who have not previously undertaken any hardanger embroidery, but knowledge of counted thread embroidery will be an advantage.

Students may choose from 2 colourways – red and white on natural or blue on white.
