Join us to learn the basic techniques of goldwork to the more advanced, how and why stitches are done in a certain way and how to perfect the skills that you already have. Creating your own Goldwork ‘Bible’ that you can use to refer back to throughout your Goldwork and embroidery journey, add samples of threads and wires and learn what they are called and what they are used for. Stitch some beautiful samples to show how threads are used, Learn several different techniques essential for any goldwork project, how to couch to perfection, how to stitch leather and use padding to give the best effects. This will be a book that you can also add to in the future.

This retreat is suitable for everyone, is there a particular stitch you want to learn? we can show you how to do it. Our tutor is Sarah Rakestraw who has many years of experience in the world of Goldwork, even writing a book Glorious Goldwork which is available on our website.
