Developing Goldwork is suitable for anyone who has attended an Introduction to Goldwork day class in recent years. This course will use a more complex design allowing for a wider range of Goldwork techniques to be used. Including at least two types of padding with passing threads, twists, pearl purls and cutwork. Building on confidence and experience to go on to enjoy other classes on offer at the Royal School of Needlework.

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 Hampton Court Palace, East Molesey, Surrey KT8 9AU

Goldwork
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.
