A Journey into the World of Raised Embroidery: Stumpwork Techniques

An in-depth study of the various techniques used in stumpwork

Our Individual Correspondence Course A Journey into the World of Raised Embroidery: Stumpwork Techniques is an in-depth study of the various techniques used in stumpwork. Students will learn by completing the work. Each lesson focuses on a specific technique that students will practice and culminates in a project that is provided or one of the student’s choosing. The project for the last lesson is a stumpwork sampler, which applies every technique the student has learned into one final piece.

This course is retiring on December 1, 2020.
