This week, the London Embroidery School was running its 5 Day Goldwork Course for Beginners where our students have been hard at work on their beetles. We thought we would share a few pictures of their progress throughout the week as their beetles take shape.

Adding cutwork for his other set of wings.
Creating extra height in the body in preparation for the bullion.
Well done to our students, you did a fantastic job and have got us excited for the next one! Now onto the intermediate beetle…
