Description

Blackwork has met its perfect companion in our online class Basket of Gold with Carolyn Standing Webb. This is blackwork that has grown up and soars to glittering heights. Gold swirls around and through the blackwork flowers and helps to create the basket that holds them.

On this class you will stitch nine different blackwork patterns with gold and three sizes of black silk thread. Gold is used for the Or Nué bands, couching and to shade the blackwork flowers. Bijoux thread in black and gold is added to patterns, used for Rhodes stitches and pattern darning. Gold beads and French knots complete this floral extravaganza.
