Whitework

Whitework embroidery covers a range of techniques which are all traditionally worked in white on white.

Techniques include Broderie Anglaise and Richelieu embroidery incorporate finely stitched eyelets, cut work embroidery, ladder work and surface stitching; Drawn thread work where the warp or weft threads of the even-weave fabric are withdrawn and embellished; Pulled work where the warp and weft threads on open even-weave linen are pulled together or apart to create a lace like repeat pattern; and Shadow work where stitches, including closed herringbone stitch, are worked on the reverse side of a transparent fabric to show a shadow on the front.

  • I have always enjoyed hand stitching and when I saw the Certificate advertised, I knew it was for me and learnt four new techniques to a 'professional' standard, and have since continued onto the Diploma course. More Testimonials >
