Joy - full kit

This exciting design is a detail from “The Flight of Icarus”, a Scottish Arts and Crafts embroidery in Phillipa’s own Crewel Work collection. The full design, which is an adaptation of the traditional “Tree of Life”, is a reflection of the new styles that prevailed at the end of the 19th Century. You can see the full design on a silk scarf in our gifts section. As you embroider the stylised sun and bird in mid-flight, you will perfect your technique in two core Crewel Work stitches - Crewel Stem and Long and Short as ‘soft shading’. You will work these stitches to create a raised and painterly impression with create a 3D effect.
