Picket Fence Garden

2 days - basic knowledge of surface embroidery required
Design size: 4.5" x 6.5"
image image In the midst of winter, it is nice to reminisce about our summer gardens. This small, colourful garden introduces many techniques to the participant beginning with silk painting and opaque textile paints to create the background.  Students can choose their own colours for this.  A simple couched gold thread border outlines the garden, adding a bit of sparkle.  The student will learn how to use combinations of several surface embroidery stitches to create each of the flowers in this dense garden. image
