What’s it all about?

From ornate robes of European aristocrats to contemporary jewellery and decorative projects, soutache embroidery remains a distinctive, unmissable style, defined by its soft swirly lines and lush use of colours.

What will we cover?

In the workshop, you’ll learn the basics of soutache embroidery – the rules regarding choice of cords and threads and the techniques to sew cords together, to add beads and to design your own soutache. You’ll follow a project that will enable you to get familiar with most often used soutache tricks, but the choice of colours will be up to you!

Who will be teaching?
