This simple daisy design is worked mainly in long and short stitch using 5 shades of coloured threads. Helen will show students how to blend these shades together to create the classic 3D appearance of painting with a needle. The daisy symbolises new beginnings and is an apt motif to commemorate a new world era after the successful Allied Invasion of Normandy in June 1944. This class is suitable for those new to the technique and for more experienced stitchers.

No experience is necessary for this class and there will be plenty of opportunity during the class to ask the Tutor questions.

The class kit will include everything you require to complete the project. You may like to bring your own embroidery scissors and you will be able to borrow ring frames, magnifiers and lights (if needed) on the day.

All the stitches covered in this class and more can be found on the RSN Stitchbank.
