Stump work adds the third dimension to embroidery. Also known as raised work or embossed work, stump work was coined when the Victorians renewed its popularity. Not to be confused with appliqué, the various elements of stump work are often worked off the frame in the form of slips and then attached to create the final three-dimensional piece. It's a really interesting challenge that students really enjoy. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens as I develop this design and I'll be really excited to share it in the beautiful surroundings of Farfield Mill in the Yorkshire Dales National Park where I am lucky enough to have a studio. Come and enjoy a day creating a beautiful stump work primrose. We will work the petals and leaves before making up into a single flower presented in a glass jar.
The course will take a day and I've selected a super range of materials.
