Hand & Lock are teaming up with London Hat Week to run a special goldwork taster workshop. 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. Students will learn the basic techniques of goldwork and be able to take away the skills to use these within their millinery work.

Full Class Structure available on request | Number of Places: 12 | All materials provided.
Upon completion of the class, students can request an official Hand & Lock certificate detailing the new skills mastered.
