Gold work Classes

Cat Nap Class at Nancys
CAT NAP CLASS

Who doesn’t love a sleeping cat?
In the first lesson you will embroider the face and then you will learn how to pad the cat in preparation for the Or Nue surface stitching. The cat will be finished with the traditional goldwork technique of Purl Pearl wire couched around the edges. There is a gap between the second and third class to allow you time to stitch the Or Nue so that you are ready to couch the edges.
What colour is your favourite cat? You could do a ginger cat with copper thread or a traditional tabby in gold.
Some embroidery experience is required.

Illuminations Class at Nancys
ILLUMINATIONS CLASS

Good surface stitchery skills are required for this class. AnneMarie has designed the most glorious range of medieval inspired illuminated initials. Come and see the beautiful samples. For the class you will choose one initial from the 22 available. Using floral images inspired by the medieval age the initial is filled with gold embroidery and surface stitchery to create a unique rich image. Once your design is on the fabric and it’s framed up (this work is done at home before class) you’ll start learning traditional Goldwork techniques. This forms the basis of the letter shape. The centre of the letter is filled with classically embroidered flowers and these will be started in the third lesson. Project will be finished at home.
