Moving on from the warm up skills we worked on in part 1, part 2 of the goldwork pear class series is all about couching. Couching is a very well used technique in goldwork pieces you may have seen which involves applying the gold thread to the surface of the fabric with discrete holding stitches. We will be introducing you to 3 types of gold thread to do this with for a variety of effects. The possibilities of couching are pretty endless as the materials are often used in combinations with each other to accentuate how they play with the light and colour. 

So if you are ready to up the challenge, get your copy of this next class on our website or if you are new to the goldwork pear design, get started with your kit and class 1 or choose one of our bundle options to grab yourself a discount on this design.

I’m sure I’ll see you next week for part 3
