This cute tubby bee will introduce you to Goldwork techniques including one form of padding, and a more contemporary use of Pearl Purl gold thread.  This cheeky chappie makes a delightful motif that can be added to a larger item.

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 The Exeter Community Centre, 17 St David’s Hill, Exeter. EX4 3RG

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.
