This lovely design contains a padded lion worked in couched silk gimp over a velvet cut silk ovale hill. The mane of the lion is worked in both silk wrapped purls and silk gimps. Silk wrapped purl flowers decorate the edges of a parchment garland that is wrapped with silk ovale and silk wrapped purls. Small amounts of gold thread, gilt sylke twist and spangles accent the other design elements. All techniques will be taught in the course, no prior experience with stumpwork is assumed.
This design is 4 3/4" high by 6" wide as shown. The kit will include all the materials to make the project as shown in the finished picture. But, as many students who might decide to take the course are also embarking on an embroidered casket, a copy of the design with additional floral pieces is included in the course that will fit the top of a double casket perfectly and the linen included in the kit was lengthened to fit if you choose to go this route. For those who choose to extend the design, it is up to the student to choose/buy the materials and techniques for the added design elements.
The kit includes: Linen, needles, soie ovale, silk gimps, silk wrapped purls, gilt 1 1/2 twist, spangles, gilt plates, gilt sylke twist, beads, parchment, wool, and couching silk.
