This kit introduces you to the art of Goldwork including stitching the pearl purl and chipping. This kit is aimed at someone who has knowledge of embroidery but would like to improve their skills to get to the next level.
Goldwork is usually seen in the military and the ecclesiastical gown. The badges and banners are usually embroidered with intricate goldwork. I personally like to use it with other techniques or within a contemporary design.
This piece 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 kit was inspired by the traditional english rose (exquisite rose). This kit is aimed at someone who has knowledge of embroidery (not necessary goldwork) but would like to improve their skills to get to the next level.
Detailed instructions can be found in each kit and will show you how to work through the design step by step. Also included are hints and tips for the technique but we welcome your additional questions at www.ecolesaintclare.com.
