Leaning on traditional techniques, learn a new modern way to create goldwork embroidery in Georgina’s distinctive style.
This 2-day experience takes an in-depth look at the creation of Georgina Bellamy’s popular “Jewel of the Sea” project which features in Inspiration Magazine’s latest best-selling embroidery book, “Passion of Needlework III”
Students will learn how to create the pad work from the designer herself, as well as some new tips and tricks to personalise your very own creation.
Over the 2 days you will learn in-depth how to take a pattern from concept to creation while also gaining much insight into how to use goldwork purls.
The final piece can be mounted in a variety of ways, each discussed at the end of class so you can take away your very own tiny piece of couture textile art.
