Class Description


Exquisite rose – Goldwork has been taken to the next level with this contemporary design. This intricate rose contains fundamental goldwork techniques, but with intricate gold pearl purl to add depth. The shading brings highlight touches to the design and contrasts with the lighter background.

This project was inspired by the traditional english rose.

We will begin by introducing the gold pearl purl on the outlines. In the second stage, you will be learning how to stitch the purl chips.

In the second session, we will finish the purl chips including how to shade it in the leaves. You will be encouraged to ask the teacher some questions or to show you a glance of other goldwork techniques.

Homework in between both sessions is recommended to allow a smooth transition to class to finish the stitching of the pearl purl.
Therefore I would welcome any questions or comments in advance in order for me to prepare and demonstrate any techniques/answers at that time.

The aim of this goldwork class is at someone who has knowledge of embroidery (not necessary goldwork) but would like to improve their skills to get to the next level.

The class is pitched towards intermediate students and the limited class size will allow you to develop at your own pace with plenty of one to one time with the tutor. 

Finished piece size is approximately 6.5cm (H)/ 5cm (W)

Each kit includes: detailed instructions, gilt pearl purl, gilt smooth purl, gilt bright check purl, pink smooth purl, grey bright check purl, red smooth purl, red bright check purl, anis green smooth purl, green smooth purl, beeswax, different sized needles, white or black satin fabric with the artwork already drawn on and one yellow Gutermann bobbin thread. 

PLEASE NOTE that for this design you have the option between a white or a black background (see pictures)

The class will allow you to develop at your own pace, with the opportunity for one to one guidance from the tutor due to the limited class numbers.

You will need the additional equipment:

– a seated hoop 8 or 10 inch (with webbing around the top ring)
– embroidery scissors
– pins
– pencil and rubber
– notepad

Recommended but Optional:

– goldwork scissors
