Goldwork embroidery – In this class, you will learn the technique inspired by Louis XVI design. You will embroider with gold and black purls, passing thread and pearl purl using the techniques of padding, couching, cutwork and loop stitch to create the design.
We will begin by introducing the different types of paddings used in Goldwork which act as the foundation of the technique. We will practise using felt padding for the shapes and string padding for the linear work. We will then move onto stitching the gold passing onto the top of the felt padding and adding the pearl purl to create a finished edge.
Finally, we will practise stitching the pearl purl to create the shape of the leaves and how to stitch the essing with gold purl. We will also practise how to do the loops with black purl.
By the end of the class you will have learned skills such as applying different types of paddings as well as the basic stitches in gold work.
Included as part of the class is a complete kit with detailed instructions, black duchess satin, calico, felt, string padding, gold rough and smooth purl, gold passing, gold pearl purl, black rough purl, needles and wax.
