Start Stitching - Beginners Hapsburg Lace Embroidery

Two Workshops and Included Full Kit Cost: $90.00

This workshop was fully booked when it was presented last year in Alfred Cove and will now be taught in Kingsley.

We will also present our full series of Beginners Workshops in Kingsley this year, a more convenient venue for those people living in the Northern suburbs of Perth.

This workshop will be conducted on two Sunday afternoons in February and March 2024.

Hapsburg Lace is a counted embroidery technique and will be stitched on Aida fabric.  We will make a Scissor fob and a biscornu style pin cushion.

Hapsburg lace embroidery is a type of ornate needlework that originated in the 16th century and became popular in Austria, particularly in the Hapsburg court. This delicate embroidery technique involves the use of fine threads, often made of silk, to create intricate designs on fine fabric, such as linen or cotton.

This beginner's workshop demonstrates the use of simple stitches to create beautiful patterns that can be manipulated to produce many unique designs.

We invite you to join us for this fun workshop to make these practical items.
