Product Description

MAY is an ideal project if you are familiar with the basics of long and short stitch and would like to stitch something a little more challenging.

Silk Shading is also known as thread painting or needle painting. It is a technique where mostly long & short stitch is used to create smooth, gentle colour changes within a design.

MAY was largely inspired by a an embroidered screen panel designed by May Morris for the wealthy Barr-Smith family who furnished their Adelaide homes with items from the famous Morris & Co company in the UK. May Morris named the panel ‘Adelaide’ as a tribute to the family – so I have named my piece MAY as a tribute to this incredibly talented designer and needlewomen.

The large centre tulip and buds is embroidered almost entirely in long & short stitch, with careful attention to shade and movement in the petals and leaves. The tulip is surrounded by a heart-shaped wreath of forget-me-nots embroidered in padded satin stitch.

The embroidery design measures 15cm x 17cm wide.

Kit Costs: $85.00

Class: $395

The full kit includes: Detailed instruction booklet with colour photographs and diagrams. Pale blue cotton / linen fabric with the design printed ready to stitch, calico, 16 shades of Au ver a soie, Soie d’Alger stranded silk and needles.
