Mountmellick Embroidery

This event has already taken place.

Mountmellick Embroidery is encompassed within the broad term ‘whitework’ embroidery and is a type of Irish embroidery developed in the early 19th century.

The stitching gives a bold design but consists of a few basic stitches used in a variety of techniques in white thread on a white background.

Participants will join tutors Dilys Harvey and Sue Leonard to make a completed sample suitable for insertion into a greetings card.

Main materials will be supplied but participants should bring a basic sewing kit of scissors, needles and a 6 to 8 inch embroidery hoop.
