Goldwork in Bishops Stortford

Spent a great day at the Rhodes Museum in Bishops Stortford yesterday teaching Gold work to a LOVLEY enthusiastic group of ladies. They were given a choice of designs to work and once decided they quickly settled down to marking the design on to their fabric and setting it into an embroidery hoop. The two main techniques taught were how to couch a twist or cord round the design and how to pad and apply raised leather work to specific areas with extra tips and ideas thrown in along our journey.
All ladies were excellent with some even drawing up and starting their own designs which I look forward to seeing in the future.
