Sardinian Knotted Candle Wrap

Tutor Yvette Stanton

November 19 - 20 2017
Place Guild House, 565 Canning Highway, Alfred Cove
Time 9:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Sardinian Knotted Embroidery, known as Punt ’e Nù, is a traditional technique that comes from the town of Teulada in the south of Sardinia. The candle wrap is worked on 28 count linen banding, and it is recommended that you bring lighting and magnification, even if you think you will be able to see that count well.

This technique does not require a hoop, and using one will actually make it harder! The wrap suits a 10cm diameter candle, but there is no need to have this for the class.

If you would prefer to make it into something other than a candle-wrap, it could just as successfully go around a vase, be made into a needle-case, or go across a cushion, or on a book cover. The piece of linen banding will be 40cm long.
