3-Sided Embroidery & Goldwork Christmas Bauble
This one-day, onsite workshop is designed forbeginners with some embroidery know-how and those with more experience
As we get closer to Christmas, we will be making a unique 3-sided Christmas bauble measuring approximately 9cm in height (excluding the ribbon). Each side is a mixture of hand embroidery and goldwork sewn onto a silk (or similar) background and finished with a ribbon, ready to hang on your tree.
During the day I will teach you how to hand embroider the motifs onto your background. Each of the sides has a different motif and is a mixture of embroidery stitches and goldwork. The goldwork will be couched onto the background and we will use stranded cotton for the embroidery. There will be a choice of stranded cotton colours for you to use. The three sides will then be cut out, padded with felt and constructed to make the bauble shape. Each seam is covered with a little more goldwork and to finish, a ribbon is attached at one end and a bell at the other. You will also receive a comprehensive set of instructions to take away with you which includes the techniques used, stitches and templates.
