Bespoke Embroidery: Whitework Lavender Bag inspired by Jane Austen

RSN Tutor, Deborah Wilding will be teaching a bespoke embroidery class at Fashion Museum Bath on Saturday 21 September 2019. Taking place during the world famous Jane Austen Festival in Bath, the class is suitable for all levels and is inspired by dress worn at the time of Jane Austen.

In this class you will create a Whitework lavender bag. The embroidery will be created on white linen with traditional stitches which are commonly used in many forms of Whitework embroidery including satin stitch, stem, chain stitch and pattern darning. The example has been photographed in a lavender colour so the detail can be seen clearly.

The class kit must be bought from the tutor on the day for £30 (cash only) and will include everything you require to complete the project.

You may like to bring your own embroidery scissors and you will be able to borrow ring frames, magnifiers and lights (if needed) on the day.

The class runs from 10.00am to 4.00pm at the Fashion Museum. Attendees must be comfortable climbing stairs. Book your place on the Royal School of Needlework website.
