Goldwork Flower in a Landscape Applique

Mary Brown Designs 2 Day Workshop – Goldwork Flower in Landscape

  • 255 Australian dollars
  • 7 clovelly road, randwick

Service Description

For this workshop Mary has designed a single flower within a landscape which is worked with surface stitching and goldwork embroidery techniques. It is a jewellery-like applique which will look so sparkly on a coat lapel, pocket or handbag. It would be advantageous to have had a little experience in handling a needle and thread but the techniques are not difficult even though goldwork looks daunting. It is simply all about couching over solid metal threads with a sewing thread or cutting hollow metal threads and threading them up as you would a bead. Mary will share every little ‘trick of the trade’ with you. Dates: Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 October Time: Meet at 7 Clovelly Road Randwick at 10am. Workshop will conclude at 3pm, with a 1 hour break for lunch Cost: $255 Level: This class is best suited to those with a little experience with needle and thread You Get:  Expert tuition from Mary Brown  A kit that includes a 35cm square of good quality calico, a square of velvet to use for cutting purls, a packet of size 10 crewel needles, sequins and beads, Gutermann sewing threads, gilt pearl purl, a variety of purls (including coloured Purls) for cutwork, S-ing and chipping, Skeins of DMC Stranded cotton  The necessary template and instructions for completing the panel Notes:  Please either bring your own lunch or you can purchase lunch from one of the nearby cafes.  Please bring a Biro or pencil, notebook and small sharp scissors for cutting metal threads as well as cotton thread  Please bring an awl or a large tapestry needle to support sewing threads  Please bring a small clamp to attach the hoop frame to the table (these can be bought at Bunnings)  Please bring a (preferably wooden) hoop frame that is at least 10mm in depth.
