There are a small number of places left in this workshop being held by renowned UK embroiderer Nicola Jarvis at the Embroiderer's Guild. Nicola is from the Royal School of Needlework and has designed this piece specially for this workshop. It is completely unique and has been worked nowhere else.
You will learn the techniques of Carrickmacross lace from someone who worked on the Carrickmacross style lace on the Kate Middleton wedding dress. As there is some preparation to do before the workshop, now is the time to make your decision to enrol in this workshop as there are a couple of places available.
Carrickmacross Kookaburras - A Carrickmacross Lace Workshop with Nicola Jarvis
Dates: Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th September 2015 10.00 am to 3.30pm
Cost: Embroiderers' Guild Members - $215.00, Non-members $260.00
Closing Date: 28th August 2015
Students will work a contemporary Australian design in traditional Irish White Work technique. The Kookaburra and Eucalypt flowers and leaves will be depicted by couching a variety of linen threads on silk organza and net. The lawn will be cut away to reveal this charming decorative motif. The design will be further embellished with filling stitches, pops and guipure. Further embellishment with pearl beads and iridescent sequins is optional (these images are of the preliminary drawings).
