When will the Zoom sessions be?
Every Thursday at 11:00 EST or 13:00 EST
What if I can't attend?
The sessions will be recorded so you can watch the re-play at your leisure
Where can I order the supplies?
An optional kit is available from Golden Hinde UK. This will not include your coloured cotton threads as you will need to choose those in the first few weeks of the course yourself.
What are you hoping I will learn by the end of the class?
My wish is that you have a deeper colour appreciation of a painting that has ‘struck’ you, enamoured you, moved you in some special way. Rather than look at the subject of your chosen painting, we will look at the colours and deconstruct the palette. We will pay tribute to this piece of art by making a goldwork ring couched with a thousand stitches of the painting’s palette. I hope that you can take your couching to the next level as you work on stitching in perfect circles with my technical instructions, and come away with a new deeper understanding of colour theory.
Can you choose the painting and colours for me?
No. The painting choice must come fully from YOU. It has to be the painting that speaks to you and with which you have a meaningful connection. I will guide you through the colour selection process.
Can I change the size and shape of the embroidery?
It is possible with consultation.
Are there any pre-requisites?
YES. You must be able to independently frame up your work drum tight in either stretcher bars or a slate frame. You must know how to stop and start threads. These basics will not be taught in class. You must be comfortable with these words in relation to your needlework: ambiguity, ambitious, adventurous, approximately, risk. This course is appropriate for intermediate/advanced level needleworkers.
Is there pre-work and weekly homework?
Yes, plenty of exciting things to discover! The more you do, the more you will get out of the course!
What happens when the course is over?
You will still be able to see the class content for an additional 6 weeks but new commenting will be turned off.
