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 surface stitch techniques, but with intricate gold essing to add depth. The red accent brings a festive touch to the design and contrast with the darker brown
Each kit includes: detailed instructions, brown embroidery thread, red embroidery thread, gold smooth purl, beeswax, different sized needles, white single duchess satin fabric with the artwork already drawn on and one Gutermann bobbin thread.
You will also need: embroidery scissors, an embroidery hoop or a frame and pins.
Also a goldwork scissors to cut the purl and a goldwork pad is recommended but this is optional.
