Description

7th, 14th and 21st April/ 2-4.30p.m UK time.

In this 3 session online workshop join Becky and discover the delights of metal thread embroidery with this elegant Kingfisher design.

Though hard to spot, the amazing and vibrant colours of this bird are so familiar! This project captures those iridescent shades in the form of silk wrapped wires and coloured metal threads.

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 three dimensional.

Stitches include Couching, Cutwork, Plate and Looped Purls in a variety of sumptuous threads. Once finished, your Kingfisher can perch on a pre-cut wooden branch before being framed in the wooden hoop provided in the kit (11cm diameter).

During the 3 sessions Becky will guide you step by step through this project using a mixture of live demonstrations, videos and images to equip you with all you need for the best results. In addition, a specific WhatsApp group will be set up enabling a live chat in, and after each session.
