Part 3 of the Intermediate Goldwork Jungle Online Class covers all the elements within the jungle design that use couching. This classic approach to sewing with gold threads allows us to keep as much of the shiny good stuff onto the surface of the fabric as is possible. With closely matched or accenting stitches we will couch the sun, tree trunk and lake areas in this part.

We talk about tackling circles versus shapes with corners and work with Japanese thread  and passing thread . Finally we introduce some colour to the couching in the Or nue section which can be seen in the lake. This will leave us in a great position for the fourth and final part of the design.
