New Book | The Goldwork Masterclass
30th August 2019
Continuing with our theme of goldwork and the brilliant designs of Alison Cole, we now have copies of Alison’s brand-new book ‘The Goldwork Masterclass’.
The opulence of metal thread embroidery was once only the domain of royalty, the church and military regalia, but today it’s readily available for all embroiderers to enjoy.
Each chapter of Alison’s book looks at a different aspect of goldwork – from traditional to contemporary. Starting with a little of its rich history and the materials and paddings beneath, through to the glittering threads and techniques for their application – this book takes goldwork apart to give you the inspiration to create your own beautiful metal thread embroidery.
