Class Description: A gilt apparition floats high above a rich field of burgundy and gold. This golden roundel is interpreted with multi-layered silks and metal as we create an exquisite floral on canvas with cantilevered, detached elements.
Hand twisted braid combines with pearl purl to form the foundation on which, the detached elements work their magic. The detached elements are worked separately on sheer fabric in the creation of this exquisite embroidery. Milliary, check purl and pearl purl are used in various combinations throughout along with gold foil, beads and several gauges of wire.
