This class is based on a pair of beautiful men’s tabbed gauntlet gloves (1600-1620), part of The Glove Collection of the Worshipful Company of Glovers of London. The gloves are cared for and housed by the Fashion Museum Bath and feature in their exhibition A History of Fashion in 100 Objects.
Stitching with silk floss and gold threads on Silk Duchesse satin, you will recreate the embroidery and gold decoration which covers one of the tabs of the gloves. Stitches will include satin, long and short, laid work, French Knots and gold work techniques.
The class kit will include everything you require to complete the project. You may like to bring your own embroidery scissors and you will be able to borrow ring frames, magnifiers and lights (if needed) on the day.
The class will run from 10am – 4pm at the Irish Countrywomen’s Association, 58 Merrion Road, Dublin 4, D04 W448
