This stumpwork poppy corsage has been designed by Cathy using organza, pure silk threads and beads to decorate. The wired petals and leaf are worked individually before being attached to create the corsage. Measuring approx. 8cm across the petals, the poppy is backed with red satin fabric and a brooch back. The techniques used to make the poppy can easily be applied to make other corsages in different colours and stitches.
Suitability - Intermediate Some experience of stitching would be useful but not essential. Suitable for beginners to stumpwork.

About the Workshop You will start by making one wired petal with red organza that is outlined with buttonhole stitch using silk thread. The leaf is made in a similar way but embroidered across the surface. You will make and complete the poppy centre. We aim for you to part-complete the poppy parts by the end of the workshop and feel confident to complete the project at home, in good time for Remembrance Sunday.
