Join Christine Bishop in a combined workshop on the 2nd and 3rd September 2019. In this workshop Christine will be teaching 2 projects - Greek Reticella and the Apple Blossom Travelcase.
Greek style Reticella is based upon the early geometric Italian Reticella. It is well documented that Reticella was introduced to the Greek islands during the Venetian occupation from 1489-1571AD, however, by this time the Venetians had been trading for at least 500 years in the Levant. The thread-based designs are worked upon a grid, with the embroidery mostly worked in buttonhole stitch with the addition of knotted picots.
The Apple Blossom Travelcase will provide you with the perfect bag in which to keep your precious jewellery whether at home or travelling. The design is a repeat pattern using a lovely colour scheme of 524, 224 and 223 DMC colours with #8 and #12 Perle and stranded cottons and using mostly counted stitches. The stitches include – back stitch, double running, cross stitch, fly stitch, woven bars, satin stitch, faggot stitch and four sided stitch.
This is a workshop for intermediate to experienced embroiderers.
