Following the success of her bugs and bees, Wendy asked me to sketch a series of folk inspired characters for her goldwork workshops – so how could I refuse ! Mr Fox is the first of four designs – a hare, humming bird and owl to follow later on in the year. She asked for a character that enabled her to teach lots of techniques – but within a day, allowing the student to complete once at home having aquired all the skills neccessary.
Mr Fox measures 8″ by 6″ inches and will be stitched on to cream dupion silk. Techniques covered include chipping over padding, pearl purl edging, stem stitch for the floral elements in metal threads and 3-d goldwork.
Wendy will supply all the gold materials for £15 payable on the day.
