204 · Blackwork Lovebirds · Tanja Berlin - Class Full

In this two day, class the student will work the Blackwork Lovebirds embroidery. We begin the project by transferring the design to the 32 count fabric using tissue paper and tacking method. The student will work the blackwork patterns within the tacked outline of the design.

The patterns are worked in backstitch or double running stitch following a stitch pattern and counting the threads of the fabric. This blackwork embroidery is not worked as a two-sided piece, instead the class will concentrate on working the embroidery so that a 3-dimensional picture is created.

We will be using black DMC floss, black YLI silk thread, red Au Ver a Soie Silk Thread and 3 shades of Kreinik Metallic Thread # 4 Braid to embroider the design. The body and beak is also outlined in gold very fine pearl purl. The metallic threads bring out the vibrant colours of the body of the birds.
