Adventures In Goldwork
Friday 18th August 2017
9.45am - 4.30pm
Tutor: Hanny Newton

£80
Metal embroidery threads have been used for centuries. Traditionally gold and silver wires were wrapped around a silk core, but today a huge range of metals are used including copper, tin, pewter and platinum are used, and a rainbow of colours are available. The technique of couching involves stitching one thread (i.e the metal) onto the surface of the fabric with another thread (i.e a cotton). Couching is a very versatile technique which can produce an amazing array of patterns and effects which we will discover throughout the day.
