This class is the perfect introduction to the beautiful Goldwork technique of Or Nué, where coloured threads are couched over gold to create colourful patterns and designs. No previous experience of Goldwork is necessary, but some experience of embroidery is advisable.
The design is worked in shades of turquoise stranded cotton with Gold Pearl Purl and Passing thread, on a deep turquoise shot Silk Dupion. Students will learn the techniques of Or Nué, as well as couching Pearl Purl finished off with Surface Stitches such as Coral Stitch.
The class is split over two afternoon sessions, a week apart, to allow for time to stitch at your own pace in between.
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.
All the stitches covered in this class and more can be found on the RSN Stitchbank.
