Goldwork Embroidery with Lizzy Pye (nee Lansbury)

August 31st - September 2nd  2018               Horsley Place               425

Lizzy was inspired by Jenny Adin-Christie to embark on a life changing apprenticeship with The Royal School of Needlework. The project for this weekend will be a tulip-inspired floral design using striking goldwork techniques on a natural linen ground. Traditional silk shading enhances the tulip flower, surrounded by shimmering golden leaves. The techniques include silk shading, felt padding, couching (where gold-wrapped threads are stitched onto the fabric), chipping (a beautiful glittering surface stitched in a similar way to beads) and pearl purl (a lovely thread with the appearance of a string of pearls). A project pack, including all the specialist materials required, is included in the cost of this weekend.
