Thickly padded and embellished raised work was all the rage among English needleworkers in the 17th century. Using variations on those techniques to create the spiral shape of a snail shell and embellishing it with beautiful silks, beads, and metal threads that are available today results in a striking combination of needlework techniques.
During this 3-day intermediate-advanced level class, students will learn about high relief trapunto work, advanced couching and holding stitches, single line beading, twisting cords, and painting with gold dust onto silk
