Popular in 17th Century Britain, Stumpwork was comprised of embroidered figures, insects, and animals to portray biblical tales or stories from court. Combining many techniques, Stumpwork is a challenging form of needlework; its historic purpose was to showcase the skill of the embroiderer. Students will sample a number of padding, lace, and figure making techniques. Students will complete a small figurative portrait.

Are you ready to take your stitching to the next level? This five part programme of study will immerse the student in the ancient art of embellishing cloth with stitches.  Each part will explore the technical approaches to a specific embroidery technique, as well as, outline steps necessary to bring individuality in design and stitch application.  The Hand Embroidery Programme is perfect for those who have a strong interest in creating fine craft, haute couture, costuming, historical textiles as well as conservation and restoration practices.

While it is not required to take each course in sequence; it is recommended.  Strong skills and foundation techniques learned in Parts 1 and 2 are necessary for Parts 3 – 5. Taking the each Course in succession will lead to a greater understanding of embroidery design and process.

Students will be awarded a Certificate of Achievement from the Anna Templeton Centre for Craft Art and Design upon successful completion of all Parts.
