Description

Join Becky in this 3 session online workshop (via Zoom) and learn the skills of metal thread embroidery.

With a combination of silk covered purls and fine metal wire threads, the Jay embroidery captures this beautiful bird with its peachy copper and electric blue plumage.

The threads in Metal work embroidery are held on the surface of the fabric by a sewing thread, and depending on the type of metal it is either stitched over or through, like a bead. The application and finish of each thread creates a different texture to suit the style of the design whether it be smooth and shiny or layered and sculptural.

Learn how to work with a variety of metal threads and master stitches including couching passing with colour (Or Nue), basketweave cutwork, applying silk covered plate and cutwork S’ing. Once finished, your Jay is surrounded with 2 wooden autumnal oak leaves and mounted in the hoop (optional).

Becky will guide you step by step through the project through a series of live demonstrations and, in addition provide you with pre recorded videos to watch at your leisure.

You will also have the option of joining a specific Jay embroidery WhatsApp group. Here, images can be shared of your progress or any challenges you have and Becky can give you feedback.

Kit includes – Wooden hoop (for presentation only), linen, cotton backing fabric, cotton sewing threads, silk covered metal threads,  metal purl threads, needles, instructions, beeswax and 2 pre cut ply leaves.  All packaged in a stylish hand screen printed gift box to keep everything safe.

This workshop is suitable for all levels, but not advisable for children as it contains small parts.

Additional equipment required- A 6 or 8 inch embroidery hoop or similar, embroidery scissors, a mellor, awl or stiletto, a ruler or tape measure, low tack tape and some pins.

Zoom links will be sent out at least 1 week before.
