A 3 day workshop with Di Kirchner




Canvaswork is an embroidery technique which uses counted stitches on a counted canvas. In this class students will be asked to create a Canvaswork Landscape piece from a photograph of their choice. It is a wonderful technique that allows you to be imaginative and ‘think outside the square’, to create a piece that is uniquely yours.
