Silk Shading, also known as painting with thread, is possibly the most artistic embroidery skill one can master. In this class, students will learn how to blend coloured threads to bring depth and realism to their embroidery. Practical application and insider tips will earn learners the ability to apply these techniques to their own garments and interiors.
Hand & Lock are now running day workshops sharing our impressive know-how and experience in this field.

These bespoke classes are taught be expert hand embroiderers who have worked in the couture industry for brands such as Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Dior, Valentino, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, YSL, Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, Schiaparelli, Lanvin and Burberry to name a few.

'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.'
