Hand & Lock, goldwork specialists since 1767, bring you the Jubilee Tour and Goldwork Taster class to celebrate H.M. The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. In this special tour and taster class, you will gain an insight into a working embroidery studio and learn the basic stitches involved in goldwork. 

The day begins with a guided tour of Hand & Lock's central London studio where you will learn about the ancient techniques we still use today to create embroidery for the Royal Family. There will be a break for lunch (no provided) followed by a 3 hour workshop featuring designs inspired by H.M. The Queen’s extensive personal jewellery collection - said to include more than 300 pieces!

Goldwork is the art of embroidery using metal threads.  Using threads imitating gold and silver, you can create metallic surface designs that reflect light and create dazzling effects. 

Suitable for beginners and novices alike.
