Quick Overview

The Royal School of Needlework (RSN) teaches hand embroidery to the highest standard and is well respected all over the world. It not only upholds the traditions of English embroidery that go back many hundreds of years, but is constantly taking embroidery forward in new and innovative ways. This series of Essential Stitch Guides has been produced in close collaboration with the RSN with the aim of providing a set of definitive works on traditional embroidery techniques. All of the authors were chosen by the RSN and all are graduate apprentices of the Royal School. Whitework begins with the history of this wide-ranging type of embroidery, then explains the materials needed and the issues of designing and ordering your work for stitching in white on white fabric. The Stitches section covers pulled thread, core surface, decorative and drawn thread stitches, as well as eyelets and cutwork. Two beautiful whitework pieces are then analysed to show how all the stitches and techniques were used, and a traditional piece is reworked with a contemporary twist. Finally the further techniques of using layers, net darning and trailing are shown. Step by step photography, full instructions and diagrams make this a clear and user-friendly guide to whitework, and Lizzy's skills and talent make it an inspirational book.

About the Author

Lizzy Lansberry graduated from the Royal School of Needlework's three-year apprenticeship in 2009. Prior to her specialist training in hand embroidery she developed art and design skills at college and spent her gap year expanding her knowledge of textiles, especially costume construction. During her time at the RSN it became clear that her passion was for fine, detailed embroidery and whitework in particular. She also loves to create beautifully hand embroidered heirloom pieces such as jewellery, and to restore antique textiles. Lizzy now works from her studio in Surrey developing her range of kits and products, as well as taking on conservation and restoration commissions. She also teaches hand embroidery to groups and individuals all over the UK, including for the Royal School of Needlework.
