CLASSES – LONG AND SHORT STITCH with a focus on colors

Train eye and hand to use colors, while learning

Long and Short Stitch. Artistic sensibilities are an added value, not a requirement!


The aim of the course is to teach long and short stitch, with step by step excerises, the review of appropriate materials and the hint of strategies for color confidence. I will highlight the importance of the choice of reference models, as a eye training exercise to colors.

Technical goals:

  • how to start and finish thread on a frame;
  • the preparation of the work (split stitch);
  • the basic technique of long and short stitch;
  • managing multiple shades;
  • how to give up pattern, towards the embroidery of natural shades;
  • the use of contrasts;
  • the drafting of converging stitches;
  • the embroidery of folds of petals or leaves;
  • the drafting of the stitches in the curves.

Course only available in italian language, at the moment.
