Red Work Wall Hanging

March 10 @ 10:00 - 14:00
The Cosy Cabin,
The Risby Barns, South Street, Risby, Suffolk IP28 6QU United Kingdom

This is a brand new workshop with Bridget and for the cabin. During this 2 session course (10 hours in total) you will make this wall hanging with the central Red Work panel. Red work itself is hand sewing using a Backstitch to create a picture. Traditionally it is worked using a red thread on a cream background, but you can break with tradition if you wish and use a different coloured thread of your choice. On the first 4 hour session you will start on your red work panel, which you will finish off at home. On the second session you will then make it into a wall hanging with the detailed edging.
