**CLASS** Colour Blending with Stranded Cotton - Sheena Norquay, Saturday 22nd June
When: Saturday 22nd June 2019 10am - 5pm
This workshop was inspired by old embroideries from Sheena's collection and concentrates on using stranded cotton threads to create colour blending and shading. Stitches taught will include detached chain, French knots, seeding, crosses, couching, Turkey Track, running and laced running.
Students can either use the design provided (Circle Flowers) which is about 8 inches square or their own design and a larger size. The colour blending which is a 6 step graded blend of 2 colours can be completed in a day but the quilting which is graded from one to six strands has to be finished at home. The sample can be made into a picture, the centre of a small cushion, a pocket or the side of a bag.
Lots of samples will be shown, illustrating various ways of blending using different numbers of strands of threads and colours – colour blending is very addictive!
