Crewel embroidery uses wool on linen and is immensely creative and great fun, with no limit to designs and colour - especially with Helen's inspiring tuition.
- This 2 day course starts with a day of mounting, showing how to present your piece of work for framing.
This first day will be followed by an embroidery day where you will be introduced to new designs and new stitches.
However, it would be totally fine if you would prefer to stitch on both days
- Course tutor Helen McCook graduated in Printed & Dyed Textiles with Art History in 2000 and then spent three years training in hand embroidery at the Royal School of Needlework. On completing the RSN Apprenticeship, she worked as Head of Costume and Textiles at Bonham’s Auction House where she developed her expertise, particularly in 16th and 17th century embroidery. Helen continued to teach and lecture for the RSN while she was at Bonham's and then during a year spent as Atelier and Production Manager for the embroiderers Hand & Lock. Images of garments displaying her work for fashion companies have been used in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Elle Collections and Hello Magazine. In 2008, she began a freelance career and now runs workshops and lectures throughout Britain and America.
- We are amazingly fortunate to have a tutor of Helen's standing coming to Logie!
