Blackwork is an ancient form of needlecraft and has been popular since Tudor times.
Blackwork is a counted thread technique and is usually worked using a chart on Aida or Evenweave fabric with a blunt needle - similar to counted cross stitch or needlepoint.
Blackwork kits have all you need - fabric, pattern, thread/floss and a needle and beads or other embellishments.
Typically, a blackwork design is completed by backstitching the outline and then filling in the internal areas with the blackwork pattern. The overall effect is a light and airy design with almost lace-like interest.
And ... not all blackwork is black!
