Silk Shading, also known as painting with thread, is possibly the most artistic embroidery skill one can master. In this class, students will learn how to blend coloured threads to bring depth and realism to their embroidery. Practical application and insider tips will earn learners the ability to apply these techniques to their own garments and interiors.

Hand & Lock are now running weekend workshops sharing our impressive know how and experience in this field. This is a rare chance to visit our Central London atelier and learn from a highly experienced master.

Throughout that time, students will learn the following:

- Hoop frame set up
- Split stitch

- Stem stitch
- French knots
- Long and short stitch

Floral Designs will be the theme of this class. All materials are provided by Hand & Lock and students will be able to keep their embroidery pack.

Suitable for beginners.

Classes take place at the Hand & Lock studio at 86 Margaret Street, London. The nearest tube station is Oxford Circus.

Classes run 10.00 - 4.30 with all course materials provided. Upon completion of the class students can request an official Hand & Lock certificate detailing the new skills mastered.
