Two Day Goldwork Workshop
Location: Hand & Lock School for Embroidery (86 Margaret Street, London W1W 8TE)
Duration: 2 days, 10:00am-4:30pm (1 hour each day for lunch, lunch not provided)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.
Hand & Lock invite you to discover the fine art of Goldwork in our London based studio. Over the course of one intense weekend, students will learn fundamentals such as setting up a full-size frame, transferring their designs, soft string padding, felt padding before learning the more complex elements such as pearl purl and cutwork.
For any of our in person courses please feel free to bring your own Magnifying Glasses or Lamps. We will supply needle threaders for you if required.
All materials provided | Upon successful completion of the class students receive an official Hand & Lock certificate detailing the new skills mastered | For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
'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.'
