Our comprehensive Essential Blackwork embroidery distance learning masterclass is suitable for complete beginners and those who want to refresh their knowledge.

Contrary to what the name suggests, Blackwork does not have to be stitched with black threads. It is a great way to fill in large areas in any embroidery and you can even use metallic threads.

You will learn about appropriate fabrics and threads.
Learn how to create filling stitches and shade using different thread thicknesses and part stitches.

Throughout the course you will have one to one tutor access via e.mail for 6 months.
Access to our Facebook working group.
Certificate upon completion.
(We make every attempt to answer e.mails the same day).

Upon completion of the course you will have all the skills needed to attempt your own pieces.

Delegates will receive a certificate of achievement upon submission of images of the completed project.

Course dates: Join any time.
Venue: Your own home.
Time: Approx 10 hours up to six months.
Places available: Unlimited.

Kit includes:
Fabric; One blank and one pre printed. (We use a high quality 16 count Aida).
Spiral bound, lay flat course booklet (English text).
All threads necessary to complete the project.

All presented in a wallet to keep your project clean.


Distance learning allows you to study in the comfort of your own home, at your own pace and blackwork embroidery is a very useful skill for many embroidery projects.
It allows you to fill large areas easily and with interest.
Attending courses is not always convenient, so with this course you can take your time and still have full expert tutor support with a certificate at the end.
We look forward to you joining us.
