Embroider this leaf sampler in a range of goldwork techniques. Discover the different gold threads and learn how to embroider with them. Techniques included in this class are applying felt, couching different threads and 'chipping'. There will be a choice of colours of silk dupion to chosse from on the day. This class is suitable for beginners to Goldwork but it is preferable that you have attended an embroidery class with us before.

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 runs from 10am-4pm at Hampton Court Palace, East Molesey, Surrey. KT8 9AU

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.
