Our newest range of workshops is starting this month with Goldwork on Saturday 21st March. In this specialist workshop you will learn the basics to the highly coveted embroidery technique, the likes of which you may have seen on Military uniforms or on Frock Coats.
Despite the name goldwork , doesn’t always have to be gold, the example here uses black bullion in the traditional cutwork technique depicting a leaf based design.
Padding is put down first to lift and support the bullion, and then each piece is applied over the top of the padding.
A combination of rough (matte) and smooth purl (shiny) have been used to add texture to this piece
