Golden Oak is a mixed technique class, combining techniques found on 17th Century Stumpwork Caskets, including Needlelace and Looped Purls and adding gold Couching to create a modern take on Stumpwork. This class is suitable for all levels of embroiderer from beginner upwards.
The design is adapted from the Tutor's Signature Piece created during her Future Tutor training - her version of a 17th Century Stumpwork Casket inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream which itself was inspired by the 17th Century Caskets in the V&A collection.
During the class we will cover the following stitches: Corded Brussels Needlelace, Stem Stitch, Couching for Gold Passing and Chenille, Raised Chain Band and Looped Purl Cutwork.
The design will be worked onto a pale green Dupion silk with hand-dyed Perlé threads from Paintbox Threads, Coloured and Silk Wrapped Purls, Cotton Chenille and Gilt Passing Thread.
The kit includes full written instructions, fabric with the printed design, calico, needles, beeswax, perle, metal and couching threads as well as a mini velvet board to help with cutting metal threads.
There will be plenty of opportunity during the class to ask the Tutor questions and in advance of the class all preparation information will be emailed to you along with an invitation to join the class on the day.
Your Zoom link will be sent a minimum of 48 hours prior to the class and will be sent to the email address you booked the class with. If you do not receive it, check your junk mail to see if it is there and if you still do not have it then please email [email protected]
The class kit will be posted out to you. The kit includes all the materials you require to complete the project. It would be useful to have a pencil and paper in case you wish to take extra notes and a pair of embroidery scissors and an 8″ hoop will be needed.
