Inspired by the drawings of William Morris, "Kelmscott" is a study in colour and texture using common and some not-so-common canvas stitches. Interesting overdyes and other speciality fibres such as silk and velvet bring this piece to life. Exciting stitches include Bound Cross, Houndstooth Cross and Triple Cross and embroidery techniques such as Couching and Blackwork are taught in this enjoyable class. As this is a small piece, students are encouraged to kit the piece from their stash. The teacher is available to help with colour choices and substitutions.
