Mirrors and Picture Frames Retreat
Want to get away with it all and relax with some wonderful Goldwork Embroidery. Meet like-minded people on our Monday-Friday retreats with many different ones held year round so there is something for everyone. No chores, no daily routine to distract you, and the luxury of feeling looked after from dinner on your day of arrival to lunch on departure day.
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. 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. Complete a gorgeous piece of work highlighting all the techniques that you have learnt
We will have 3 designs for you to choose from (please note the main picture and black and silver mirror are the 3 design, the other mirrors are owns designs), however if you have a design in mind when you have booked all we ask is that you send the design to us ahead of time, this is so we will have an idea of the best threads, wires and techniques to use
This retreat is suitable for everyone, is there a particular stitch you want to learn? we can show you how to do it. Choose your design and away you go. We have 2 well established Tutors with Sarah Rakestraw taking the lead, with many years of experience in the world of Goldwork.
A pack will be available to purchase, you will be able to choose the colours you want to work with, so the cost will be selection dependent.
