This course is a great way to explore the wonderful art of goldwork embroidery and is suitable for complete beginners.
You will learn about appropriate fabrics, how to transfer your design and frame up your piece ready for sewing.
Learn all the essential Goldwork techniques for application of unique threads. Discover how to use felt padding and apply metallic leather/fabric. (Vegans will be pleased to know that we use a lovely soft faux leather).
Discover the difference between the many types of Goldwork thread available and their application. We try to focus on modern threads which are more resistant to tarnish and in some cases are even washable.
