Course outline

Goldwork embroidery is the art of using metal threads with metal leaf wound round a normal textile thread. It is particularly prized for the way light plays on it. A variety of embroidery stitches will be taught during this workshop using metallic thread!

Successful applicants will receive a kit of materials for this workshop.
