This delightful fox is embroidered in 3 Metalwork techniques over layers of felt padding.

Metalwork embroidery is a technique seen throughout history on pieces such as haute couture garments, ceremonial and military dress, and ecclesiastical furnishings. Its richness and opulence was a symbol of wealth and power, and fine examples can be seen on the Queen’s Coronation Robe as well as high fashion today.

The fox has Antique Gold, Silver and Copper metal threads in a variety of stitches including Couching, Chipping and Cutwork, all traditional skills in this beautiful style of embroidery, which once completed can be mounted and hung in the little wooden hoop provided.
The finished fox embroidery measures approximately 8x6cm, and the wooden hoop is 11cm diameter.

This cute fox design is the second in the 'woodland creatures' series by Becky Hogg.

This class will run from 10am-4pm at Hampton Court Palace, East Molesey, Surrey KT8 9AU
