Hey, hand embroiderers! Loving the new Gilded Heraldry designs? Want to learn how to make ’em really shine?
Over on Mastered, the amazing stitchers of London hand embroidery company Hand & Lock (embroiderers to the royal family, military, celebrities, and top fashion designers) are teaching an online course in goldwork embroidery. And we’re sending one of you to stitching school! Watch the trailer for a glimpse into the course (or see the hi res version here):
In addition to the detailed video instruction, this course lets you upload images of your work to get feedback from industry experts. If you want to learn goldwork from the very best, short of visiting Hand & Lock, this is probably the awesomest way to do it. Read more about the online goldwork course here!
