Course Details

with Lizzy Pye

5th - 7th June 2020
Highfield Park



Lizzy is a professional embroiderer and Graduate of the RSN. She has worked on designs for The Royal Opera House and Kate Middletonís wedding dress. She has also recently written a book on Goldwork.

The project for this weekend will be a tulip-inspired floral design using striking goldwork techniques on a natural linen background. 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, will be available to purchase.
