What is stumpwork embroidery? Stumpwork or otherwise known as raised work is a highly skilled form of 3D hand embroidery, which gives a raised multi dimensional look. Stumpwork, with a cross over into hand embroidery stitches, allows you to create detailed 3D pieces and embellishments. It may be best to have some knowledge of hand embroidery before starting out with stumpwork. The “Learn Hand Embroidery Course” from the School of Stitched Textiles is an ideal course to undertake before embarking on this stumpwork course.
A really easy and quick introduction to this beautiful 3D embroidery technique will be conducted by embroidery instructor, Karen Quickfall. Karen will take you step by step through the creation of a gorgeous rose and caterpillar design.
