I came across this design while rummaging through the RSN archives where I trained and still teach. It immediately caught my eye and so I created a class around it. The two day course will help you refresh or learn about silk shading, sometimes called painting with a needle. Students enjoy the course and all succeeded in finishing. We will work some samples before embarking on the Viola itself this way we make sure that you can really get to grips with the stitch and techniques. Once complete the design does well as a lavender bag or just on its own.
