Class Description


The four day masterclass will allow you to learn the art of Goldwork, creating a brooch through the use of traditional embroidery stitches.

We will begin making the wings, stitching the pearl purl around them to create the finished edge.  We will learn the technique of gold passing including how to plunge it.

We will progress to adding beads with a chain stitch in gold metallic thread and applying the Swarovski crystals to complete the wing.

We will introduce the different types of paddings used in Goldwork. The paddings are the strong foundations to a beautiful Goldwork embroidery. We will be applying the felt padding specially used within a shape and the string padding used more for linear artwork.

The next stage is to add the antenna with silver wire, gold smooth purl and glass beads.  We can then complete the body with gold essing over the padding and around it.

On the final day we will complete the loop stitch with gold and silver smooth purl.

By the end of the class you will have learned many different techniques associated with Goldwork.

Included as part of the class is a complete kit required for the class.

Please bring with you for the class: A round hoop, 8 or 10 inch (with a stand if you can, so that you can use both hands. If so, then wrapped with webbing around one circle to protect and maintain the tension of the fabric).

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.
