Skill Level 1 Mini Course in Goldwork


Getting Started in Goldwork Course


Product Description

This course will give you a great introduction to the traditional embroidered methods of stitching with metallic threads and kid. This is a hand stitch course, so you won’t need a sewing machine at all. You will cover;

  • A little simple design work (or alternatively use the designs we have used in the video)
  • Transferring your design to fabric
  • Types of goldwork threads and suppliers
  • Couching with Jap Gold thread
  • Application of gold kid (or fake kid if you prefer)
  • Application of smooth purl
  • Application of pearl purl
  • Using coloured embroidery threads in goldwork
  • Application of plate

After learning these unusual techniques we will also show you how to evolve your own design to create a panel suitable for framing or as a hanging or cushion centre.

We estimate the whole course will take 25-35 hours for you to complete
