About the Course
A great 1 day course for those wishing to learn the stunning art of goldwork embroidery.
Set in the historic city of Carlisle, our modern goldwork course makes an ideal gift for a friend or loved one and can easily be combined with a weekend break.
Our Modern Goldwork Embroidery course is a great way to explore this wonderful art for complete beginners.
Discover the range of unique threads and wires.
You will learn about appropriate fabrics and design transfer techniques as well as a range of goldwork stitching techniques such as couching, sinking, leather applique and padding.
All materials, course notes and morning and afternoon refreshments are included. You will need to make your own arrangements for lunch but we have plenty of sandwich shops, cafes and restaurants very close to the training venue.
Upon completion of this course you will have the necessary skills to attempt projects on your own.
We keep delegate numbers limited to 10 to allow plenty of tutor contact time.

Thoroughly enjoyed this course. I have tried embroidery in the past but thing tended to go wrong and I gave up.
Maire made sense of all the problems I had been experiencing and I now feel confident to try embroidery again.
I liked the free designs which will give me plenty of chance to practice my new skill.
Wonderful...will be booking another one!
