In this workshop we take a look at traditional Karelian embroidery and how it was used in clothing and home textiles. We'll make traditional backstitch patterns with red thread on white linen, try organically flowing chain stitch embroidery and look at pulled thread work. We'll also have a go at designing contemporary work so you can tell your own story in stitch.
