The word ‘goldwork’ is used to describe embroidery with metal threads and wires, even if they are not gold!  This technique has a long history all over the world; originally reserved for items of state and ceremony, now it can be enjoyed by everyone.

Some threads are stitched over to secure them to the fabric, others are cut and stitched through - like beads.

This design fits in a 6 inch ring frame and is an entry-level project.  This kit covers two fundamental techniques and would make a perfect Christmas ornament for yourself or as a gift.

The kit explores two types of couching plus chipping and padding techniques.

In the box you get full instructions for each stitch, with tips on how to achieve the best results.

Kit contains:  linen fabric, felt, pearl purl, 2 coloured twists, coloured wire check, bright check, spangles, sewing thread, needles, design and full instructions

The kit comes in a presentation box for handy storage.  Fabric is wrapped with acid-free tissue to protect your embroidery project.

Material Pack contains the threads and padding only, you will need to refer to the instructions in Goldwork Embroidery Techniques and Projects, and supply your own fabric and needles (you can purchase linen here if you wish).
