Class Description


Silk Shading – This class introduces you to the art of silk shading including split stitch, short and long stitch, stem stitch and satin stitch. Silk shading is the art of creating shading with threads. This technique is also called needle painting (peinture a l’aiguille).

The completed design reveals a flower with pink petals and carefully applied Swarovski crystals add to the effect of droplets allowing the design to “shimmer” or “glisten” in the light.

This class is aimed at someone who has knowledge of embroidery but would like to learn or improve their silk shading techniques.

Included as part of the class is a complete kit with detailed instructions, white duchess satin, different colours of silk thread, Swarovski crystals, glass beads, white Gutermann thread and needles.
