Shadow Embroidery uses herringbone stitch worked on the rear of the fabric to produce a colour on the front. The soft shades showing through to give a shadow effect.
Originating in India, being worked on transparent fabrics such as muslins and cottons. Shadow Embroidery later arrived in Europe and today is often associated with the embroidery of Madiera and associated with whitework for underwear and christening gowns.
This class builds on basic techniques to include a wide variety of shapes and overlapping and surface stitchery.
Students may choose to use this piece for framing or as a travel bag, a table mat, a coat hanger cover, or a cushion are other suggestions.
