This is a relaxing course and suitable for the absolute beginner as well as the more experienced embroiderer.Using pictures, photos and samples of ribbon work for inspiration, as well as demonstrations of flowers and foliage, create your own Tree complete with a very handsome Partridge! A background can be lightly sponged on with paint before flower stitches are added to give a guide to your design. Silk ribbon is very easy and quick to use as it is soft and malleable, while other materials can be too stiff. Needle felting is an easy technique using a barbed needle and a little wool. This piece could then be framed on the course or finished as a book cover, cushion etc. at a later date.
