Goldwork Weekend Workshop
Next Course dates: Saturday 1st July 2017 - 10am - 4.30pm
Location: The London Embroidery School, Hawthorne & Heaney Studio, 14 Rathbone Place, W1T 1HT
In this intensive workshop will take you through 4 gold work techniques and two raising techniques.
To start we will show you how to prepare your artwork for gold work embroidery with the traditional prick and pounce technique. After this preparation you will be shown edging stitches with Pearle Purl and be filling this area with bright check chips.
Later we will teach you your first raising technique, "Pad Raising". After edging your area (which you will of course mastered by now!) you will cover this pad raising with "couched" japanese threads.
Finally we will teach you the most difficult of the techniques Bump Raisings and cut work. After preparing and edging your area you will be taught how to fill the area with graduated bump raising and then instructed in cutwork.
Please remember although you will be learning in a mixed level group and your class is tailored specifically to your progress.
