Class size: Maximum 12 participants.
It will be a weekend full of stitching, with our expert, Sue Gass, who regularly teaches at the Embroiderers Guild, Victoria. Sue will show you the basics of Goldwork Embroidery.
Gold work is a metal thread embroidery worked in gold threads of varying types to add depth and texture to the work. The embroidery sits on the surface of the background fabric with a waxed thread used to couch the work to the background fabric to give a 3D effect.
Participants will work a piece that they can use as a book cover, picture etc.
The piece participants will stitch is of Australian gum leaves, using various threads such as purls, couching, checks, kid etc. All requirements for the embroidery including a hoop will be provided in kit form along with extensive notes enabling students to complete the work.
