Goldwork is the art of embroidery using metal threads. Historically associated with ceremonial and military uniform the technique is now also popular in customization, 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.

'I've been so impressed with Hand and Lock and the tutors. The materials are exquisite. It's all just so wonderful. Also I've taken a lot of courses and Hand & Lock tutors are the best tutors out of all of them. I love that the tutor encouraged us to make the patterns our own. We can tweak the style a bit and it's not a big deal. So fun to learn techniques but not feel constrained by them.'
'Lots of information given about the course. I liked the addition of the tutor’s own ideas to give me further inspiration. Felt encouraged whilst taking course as it is a difficult skill. Great course. Thank you.'
'I really like the different designs and ideas you have and the support during the course work is excellent.'
'The tutor's feedback was really sweet and encouraging. I am rather ambitious when it comes to technical stitch level so for me it works well to mention things that are not great yet so that I know how to improve them.'
