Goldwork embroidery: all levels

Goldwork embroidery


This elegant inspired border is embroidered with five Goldwork techniques. You will learn these techniques including couching and essing.

You will be able to couch the passing and learn how to plunge it. You will also develop the technique of stitching the pearl purl.

In the second part of the day, we will work on how to do the essing with gold purl. We will also learn how to make Diamond motifs with a silver smooth purl and how to do the loops to create a flower.

You will feel comfortable using the skills you have learned in Goldwork following this class.

I have over 12 years experience of Tambour Beading and work for International Catwalk between London and Paris. I have been teaching over 7 years all over the world including Canada, England, United States and Paris.

I want to transmit my knowledge so the art of embroidery stay alive and still inspire us.

I attended the Goldwork course at Bluecoat in Liverpool, the venue was great and easy to get to from local and national rail lines. The classroom was bright and comfortable to work in. The teacher is highly skilled and very knowledgeable about Goldwork. She is very approachable, patient and supportive. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learnt a lot of valuable knowledge and skill. I would recommend it anyone wishing to learn a new skill or improve the their hand embroidery. Thanks for a great day.
