Distance learning is a way for me to teach those who cannot access my classes in person.
The next distance class is my ever popular goldwork bluebell design. Over 8 weeks the class will cover everything from transferring the design, silk shading, working the padding, couching, plunging, chipping, pearl purl outlines, cutwork and s-ing. All of these techniques will be taught in the traditional way.
The generous materials pack will contain hand dyed felt fabric along with all of the gold metals and stranded silks required for the piece.
Each week the videos relating to the class will be added to a dropbox folder, these will be accessed through a direct link sent to you via email. I encourage you to send pictures of your stitching along with any questions as they arise.
You can secure your place on the class by paying half now with the balance due before the kits are dispatched or you can pay in full at the time of booking.
