RSN Tutor Helen Jones teaches a bespoke Stumpwork embroidery class, as part of a series to celebrate the Overlord Embroidery - which was made by the RSN from 1968 to 1974. The class is suitable for all levels, with beginners welcome.
Helen will teach students how to create this stunning design using fabric, simple stitches, wire and silk-wrapped purls to create a sweet briar rose; and more threads and beads to stitch some nettles.
Helen's class has been inspired by the beautiful D-Day memorial window in Portsmouth Cathedral (1956). The window commemorates Admiral Bertram Ramsey, who was born at Hampton Court Palace and went on to be Naval Commander of the D-Day landings, as well as those who died under his command. The design of the window includes an image of a flower and a nettle which is a reference to a quotation from Shakespeare's Henry IV: "Out of this nettle, danger, we pluck this flower, safety."
Helen says: "This idea struck me as a lovely basis for some Stumpwork, also known as Raised Work, and I chose the rose as the flower which you will work for this class."
