What you will do

Single session

An age old technique which dates as far back as the Middle Ages, gold work is steeped in tradition, and has predominatly been used as means to portray power wealth and status. A form of hand embroidery whereby the embroiderer is able to harness precious metals such as gold and silver in the form of wire to embellish the lavish court dress of kings and queens, adorn copes, vestments and chausables for the church as well as many other uses, it is a technique which has also been successfully translated into contemporary contexts such as fashion.

Through the workshop we will explore the contemporary application of fashion for this unique and traditional technique.

From learning how to draft your embroidery design, transferring this to fabric then finally working with a variety of specialist gold work materials to realise your design and complete your very own contemporary fashion gold work motif to take home.

The workshop will be led by a professional embroidery designer with over ten years of industry experience and particular expertise in this technique. Technical guidance and group one to one demonstrations will be shown which coincide with a step by step guide to support technical progression in the workshop and after.
