Our quality goldwork boards are hand made at our atelier.
We use a heavy grade cotton velvet for the dark surface and a finer cord velvet for the lighter side.
Whilst constructed specially for goldwork, they are also perfect for beading.
The goldwork board is approx A5 in size and will be supplied with a protective zipped wallet to keep it clean and protected.
Precious chips of goldwork Check thread and beads are prevented from rolling around by the nap of the velvet which also provides a soft cutting surface to protect the wires as they are cut.
Having a dark and light side allows the embroiderer or beader to easily see objects no matter what their colour.
For those working embroideries on large frames, the lighter side will sit on the fabric of the piece without causing damage and the gentle ridges formed by the velvet cord act to stop it sliding around.
A delicate soft rope edge finishes the board but does not sit up over the edge to avoid tiny chips or beads getting stuck. The colour of this edging may vary but is usually grey, teal or cream depending on availability of supplies.
The interior of the goldwork board is a high grade sturdy artist mount board.
Cleaning the board should only be carried out using a soft damp cloth. Do not wash.
Colours: Currently available in a rich deep teal with a shaded dark diagonal stripe and an ivory reverse.
