This stunning class introduces students to the more complex techniques in the goldwork embroidery technique. Creating this padding and stitched grid sampler piece introduces students to the fundamentals of goldwork padding and cutwork along with various couching stitches, s-ing, leather work, or nué stitches, basket weave techniques, along with exploring tension, texture, and coverage. The piece is stitched on cotton twill, using a selection of goldwork threads and wires, but also padding techniques such as hard string, card, carpet felt. There are several colourways to choose from.
The finished piece measures 25 x 19cm and would make a great box lid, cushion front or bag panel if you were seeking to make a practical item, or simply a beautiful framed piece of artwork for your wall.
