Inbetweeners - Gold(i)works and the one bear

Some very different pieces of work from our members this time. 

Sue Tebbutt has been perfecting her goldwork techniques on two different pieces of work. 

Firstly, this printed panel which she bought from Beyond Measure in Todmorden. 
"They come printed in different colours 
but this yellow made me think of covering it up with goldwork"

Sue has also finished another piece of goldwork, this time using the advanced  technique of Or Nué. 
Or Nué (or shaded gold) is a form of goldwork embroidery using couching where different coloured silk threads are stitched over the metallic base of gold threads to form patterns or designs. The finished product is deliberately stitched so that the metal shows. 
Sue's design measures 7cm in diameter, including the goldwork border. 

Abigail Ledder has been on a workshop at Fabberdashery in Halifax and has made this fabulous tiny "Bear in a Teacup".

  1. Fabulous work. One of my friends at bookbinding makes miniature bears and is always wowing us with her creations.
