Welcome to the Royal School of Needlework The International Centre
of Excellence for the
Art of Hand Embroidery
Silk Shading & Goldwork: ‘Carousel Horse’ - Williamsburg (Code 3288)
Also known as ‘painting with a needle’, this beautiful technique uses a number of colours in cotton, skillfully blended together to create the natural appearance of a flower, fruit, plant or animal.
This technique has its history in military, ecclesiastical and royal regalia, but it also creates the most beautiful and dramatic embroideries. Using a wide variety of metal threads, it can be combined with other techniques to produce luxurious effects.
The class kit will include everything you require to complete the project. You may like to bring your own embroidery scissors and you will be able to borrow ring frames, magnifiers and lights (if needed) on the day.
This class will run from 10am-4pm at Williamsburg School of Needlework, 5121 Center Street, Williamsburg, Virginia 23188
