Stumpwork Embroidery Course

Weekend Residential Stumpwork Embroidery Course with Fleur Oakes

A weekend course exploring 3-D embroidery techniques in a quality hotel in Milton Keynes

Tutor: Fleur Oakes
Dates: Friday, 15 September – Sunday, 17 September 2017
Venue: Mercure Milton Keynes

Course Content

Stumpwork is a beautiful style of embroidery where stitching is raised from the surface to create a three-dimensional effect. This course provides you with the opportunity to learn how to create unique flowers, leaves and insects. And it is ideal if you want to try stumpwork and have some experience in basic embroidery techniques.

Fleur will lead you through various steps, advising you on designing in needlelace, artistic technique and how to plan a project. You will be learning a wide range of skills, which are adaptable to any future work. Bring any ideas you may like to try; this is the perfect chance for you to challenge yourself in this creative form of embroidery with the support and assistance of a highly experienced tutor.

Fleur’s main interest is to expand her students’ techniques so that they create original three-dimensional embroidery. Her practice also involves lecturing and tutoring at private colleges, community groups and to medical students.

She is currently artist in residence with Imperial College where, by applying stumpwork techniques, she is helping surgeons become more proficient when they perform vascular key-hole surgery.

Course fees: £385

Textile artist Annette’s beautiful work contributed to my decision to learn more about patchwork and quilting.   Liza from Anglia Leisure Learning made sure everything ran smoothly – thank you Liza and Annette (Morgan the tutor);  it was a wonderful weekend.

I really enjoyed the course and you did and excellent job organising it. The highlight was falling in love with sewing again, after a five year gap. Thank you!

I have attended two courses in the last six months. Excellent tutors and excellent venues.  I’ve learnt so many new quilting techniques.  Can’t wait until the next one.

Yvonne Gill

Just home from an amazing residential course with the talented Cas Holmes. Everything was so easy, from booking, the meet and greet, information packs and support whilst away. The hotel was perfect and Liza Jones did a brilliant job keeping everything running smoothly. I am already researching my next course.
