talented Goldwork artist & tutor
Becky specialises in Metal thread embroidery, a technique traditionally seen on ceremonial dress and historical costume. This striking style of embroidery has a sculptural feel and uses threads that are pure metal.
Often raised up by a felt padded surface to create light and shadow on the metallic threads, the application of the metal threads is quite different to other processes in hand embroidery; as each metal is held on the surface of the fabric with a sewing thread, as they are too thick or too delicate to sew with.
You can learn the Delicate art of gold work embroidery...
Make your own Hasting Mackerel with Becky in our upcoming workshop on Tuesday 4th October 2022.
This workshop is suitable for a complete beginner as Becky will guide you through each step.
The kit is included in the price of the workshop, but it would be good to bring your own embroidery scissors.
A truly creative and mindful day, finished with your own new Goldowork Mackerel – a lovely gift to yourself or friends! (I’m even thinking quirky Christmas Tree Dec?!)
