Goldwork with Meredith

Wow, what an exciting two days we have had.  The one and only Meredith Willett was here to teach gold work.

Goldwork is the art of embroidery using metal threads.  It is always surface embroidery.

This is a piece of Meredith's that is simply stunning.


On day one there were lots of demos.


Chipping is right up my alley; It involves cutting little pieces of real metal and sewing them on like beads.  Yummy, look.


I love the look of real metal threads coiled with a pretty colored silk.
 

 

Day two was design day.  Pick an image and with the help of Meredith create a plan to transform it into a beautiful example of goldwork.







Everyone had a great time, learned a lot and came away with a new found appreciate of the art.

If you ever have the chance to take this class with Meredith it is a must have!

Today we begin two days of embellishment classes. You know what that means..... eye candy.

See you soon.
