Originally found in Whitework embroideries, today Shadow work is a group of techniques that place various materials behind a semi-transparent fabric. It is thought to have originated from the Indian Chikankari style, still popular today.
This lesson will introduce you to three types of Shadow work:
1. Embroidered, this type of shadow work uses herringbone stitches interlaced with running stitches. This produces an interesting effect at the front of the work.
2. Appliqué, this effect is the result of two layers of fabric. The upper layer is a see through fabric and the under layer can be any colour, shape or design
3. Padded, or Trapunto (Italian for stuffed). This is a technique where an area of the design is padded with thread or another material from behind. It also needs to be worked with two layers of fabric
Rita will take you through each technique, working a pretty floral and leaf piece which can be made into a sachet, book cover or decorate a garment or pocket
