Silk shaded daisy embroidery class (online)

Friday 22 January 2021

10am to 4pm

In association with the Royal School of Needlework.

Silk shaded daisy with Helen Stevens.

RSN Tutor, Helen Stevens will be teaching a stunning Silk Shaded Daisy motif at this Museum Partner class in conjunction with The D-Day Story. Students will also hear more about the Overlord Embroidery (stitched by the RSN from 1968 to 1974) in an exclusive presentation by a museum expert during the event.

This simple design is worked mainly in long and short stitch using 5 shades of coloured threads. Helen will show you how to blend these shades together to create the classic 3D appearance of painting with a needle. The daisy symbolizes new beginnings and is an apt motif to commemorate a new world era after the successful Allied Invasion of Normandy in June 1944. The class is suitable for those new to the technique and for more experienced stitchers.

As well as an exclusive insight into how the Overlord was designed and stitched, you will also receive a free pass for one visit to the museum, valid for 12 months from the date of the class.

The class is hosted and run online by the Royal School of Needlework. Book by 15 January. For more information and to book visit: Royal School of Needlework
