Part 2: Surface Stitching
Surface stitching is the foundation for most decorative stitching. Traditional techniques such as Bayeux stitching, Jacobean and Elizabethan Crewel will be discussed but emphasis will be place on contemporary design, techniques and materials. This is the second part of the Hand Embroidery Certificate Programme, but the segments do not need to be completed in sequence.
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.
