The London Embroidery School is delighted to present the final class in our Summer Season of classes, the Jewelled Beetle class with Michele Carragher. We will be hosting a class with the embroiderer extraordinaire, responsible for the amazing embroidered creations for the Principle cast members on the TV series Game of Thrones.
Michele’s designs have brought a bright spotlight onto embroidery in costume as the intricacy of her designs demands attention. She has a multitude of experience designing embroideries for costumes for other TV series and films before working on the plethora of pieces that she has produced for Game of Thrones. There is a variety of techniques used in her designs including goldwork, silk shading, beading, and smocking through which many subtle themes and concepts are communicated to reflect the development of the character as well as being remarkable pieces in their own right.
Regular readers of our blog may already be familiar with Michele’s work following our ode to costume embroidery back in April and now you can not just admire the Michele’s work from afar, but learn directly from the designer herself teaching one of her designs. The piece that will be taught in this one off class is a stumpwork embroidery beetle it is an incredibly beautiful and intricate piece, reflecting the real insect with surprising accuracy. The skills from which can be transferred into other designs as Michele has done throughout the series.
