The Contemporary Textiles Fair in association with The Royal School of Needlework is delighted to offer two 1½ hour taster workshops in
Goldwork and Blackwork.
Goldwork Workshop: Try the two main techniques used – couching, the laying of metal thread on the surface secured by stitches, and ‘chipping’,
where metal thread is cut up and stitched down in small pieces.
Blackwork Workshop: Traditionally associated with garments and usually depicts floral motifs worked in repeated counted patterns. Use
traditional counted patterns of differing densities worked in black thread to create shades and tones.
Cost: £19.50 per workshop OR £35 for both. Price includes entry to the
fair and all materials
