About the Course

Canvas work, tapestry, needlepoint; all are names for the same fascinating embroidery technique.

This course is for complete beginners, or maybe also embroiderers experienced in other techniques who would like to add to their skills.

We will cover all you need to know – what types of canvas and thread to use, how to frame up your work, how to block and make up the finished piece.  You will work your own sampler, learning a wonderful array of stitches and make it up into something useful.
