Ribbonwork Dahlia Flower October 04, 2016 09:45

Today I am getting everything ready for my Introduction to Ribbonwork class which will be held at The Royal School Of Needlework on Sunday 9th October.
I love using this delicate embroidery technique and in the class each student will create their own pretty Dahlia Flower design. They will learn a range of ribbonwork stitches using buttercup yellow, moss green and leaf green silk ribbons on a background of hessian and calico fabrics. The day will then be finished by learning how to carefully apply silk paints to add definition and relief to their flowers.
It's going to be a really fun day - I'm looking forward to it!
