The design harks back to the vintage Christmas baubles of the 1950s and will be worked in coloured metal wires and threads. Techniques included are leather worked over felt padding, couching, cutwork, chipping, over-stretched purl pearl and some surface stitching.

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

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.
