Stumpwork has enjoyed a wonderful revival from early samples worked in the 15th century through to modern applications today. The technique uses a variety of different materials with many different embroidery stitches. You will learn the core elements of flat stitching, raised stitching as well as padding and wiring. You will begin the day revising essential embroidery stitches and then work a small project to take home.

Skill Level: Although not essential, some experience in embroidery techniques would be beneficial.

Veronica's story...Trained as a classroom music teacher, professional flute player and conductor, Veronica’s equal passion is technical hand embroidery. The seed was planted at a young age while sewing on an old machine with her mother but it was later in life that she learnt the craft of hand embroidery; particularly Stumpwork, Goldwork and embroidery with ribbons. While working in Switzerland for 10 years, Veronica was able to enjoy regular trips to the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court Palace in England where she developed her technique and where she continues her studies today.
