Embroidery : Goldwork

Goldwork refers to all embroidery worked with metallic threads whatever the colour. The attraction is the different textures of the threads and the way they reflect in the light when altering the direction of the laid threads or stitching over padding.

In this class, you will learn about the different types of thread and how to use them. Click on the images on the right to see the threads close up that can be used to create your work. An advanced class for those wishing to expand their goldwork skills further is available on Friday 22nd May from 2.00pm to 5.00pm.

  • 8” Embroidery Hoop

Tea and Coffee will be provided on the day.


Courses run from 10 am until 1 pm.

“I’d never done any embroidery before and didn’t think I’d be any good at it but with Anne’s patient teaching I’m learning the basic skills and am loving being creative. I’ll definitely be trying more classes soon. ”

“I’d done a little embroidery as a child but my skills were long since forgotten. The basic course is perfect for beginners, I found it gave me the confidence to try more embroidery skills. Great courses and a fun way to spend a morning.”
