Green embroidery

On Saturday, March 23, 2019, we conducted two series of embroidery workshops. Approaching spring inspired us to choose plant motifs – leaves, flowers, herbs, etc. First, we learnt how to transfer the patterns onto the fabric (linen or cotton) using carbon paper. For younger participants it was the first contact with this copying technique 🙂 Then we chose the thickness and color of the thread and started embroidering. Our instructor – Anna Raczkowska presented various stitches of flat embroidery. The chain and French knots enjoyed the greatest popularity. We also learnt how to start and finish embroidery using methods from Kurpie, the region the family of our instructor come from.
