This 6 week course will introduce students to the fundamentals of Goldwork by creating a sampler of Goldwork and Padding Techniques.
Padding samples can be left uncovered so that they can be referred to in future, and there will also be space on the sampler for students' own experimentation with the techniques learnt.
Suitable for embroiderers with some stitching experience, but no previous knowledge of Goldwork is required. Perfect for students who are thinking about joining the C&D Basic Goldwork module and would like a chance to work the techniques before committing to your own design.
The kit includes a variety of Goldwork threads and padding materials that will be used to create your sampler including: Pearl Purl, Smooth Purl, Rough Purl, Bright Check, Wire Check, Japanese Passing, Smooth Passing, 1 ½ Twist, Rococo. Needles, Printed calico fabric, padding materials, sewing thread, beeswax and a mini velvet board are also included. Written instructions are not included but there will be time to take notes.
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. Your kit includes everything you need including a full colour, step by step instruction booklet. The only things you’ll need are an 8” ring frame and embroidery scissors. .It would be useful to have a pencil and paper in case you wish to take extra notes.
