Hand & Lock Goldwork Taster Class - London Hat Week
Location: Hand & Lock, 86 Margaret Street, London, W1W 8TE
Daily Time: 2pm - 5pm
Hand & Lock, Goldwork specialists since 1767, bring you a taster class for complete beginners, providing an insight into the possibilities of working with gold metal bullions.
Goldwork is the art of embroidery using metal threads. Historically associated with ceremonial and military uniform the technique is now also popular in customisation, couture and interior design. Using threads that are imitation gold, silver, copper, or coloured allows embroiderers to create metallic surface designs that reflect light and create dazzling effects.
At the end of the class you will have a specially embroidered ribbon to tie in your hair or around a sun hat!
In this special 3 hour class, during London Hat Week, you will learn the basic stitches involved in goldwork.
