Oppulent Urn of Flowers - Virtual Class

When: May 13, 2023
From 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Where: Online

A wide array of fine threads, ribbons, fabric, stitches, techniques, beads and a very famous designer urn ornament from Australia create the magic of this embellished embroidery. The piece is suitable for framing.

We will learn three different ribbon flowers that are easily made. The flowers are framed in Victorian metalwork embroidery. The metal embroidery thread makes it easy to achieve accurate leaves. By using traditional embroidery stitches in avante-garde ways -- upside down, messy and scattered -- we will learn how to integrate all these materials and techniques into this very dimensional piece.

The finished embroidery is 4” x 5” and is done on heavier background fabric which makes for nicer, easier finishing.
