About This Class

There are many different techniques that can be effectively used to improve your embroidery pieces. On Instagram, you can find many examples of artists adding depth and shading to their pieces - this might look complicated but I will show you how easy it is!

In this class firstly we will learn how to trace your image for creating depth and shading, and you can then stitch along with me to see the process from beginning to end. Take a look at the project description and resources for a list of the materials we will be using in this class. 

I will go over:

  • Materials you will need
  • How to select and trace your image
  • Getting the image onto the fabric
  • Selection and placement of the stitches
