Tomorrow evening, you have a chance to become one of the lucky people who gets a spot in the second run of my medieval goldwork course! And what a course it will be! I am excited about some upgrades in the materials we will use and the new platform Padlet. In addition, my research continued and the information of a couple of great new books is finding its way into the hand-outs. And thanks to the students of the first run, I will make some updates in the instructions as well. Read on so you'll know where the sign-up link will appear.
The 15 kits have all been packed. I've tried to reduce the use of plastic as much as possible. However, customs like to know what is in a kit and if they can spot contents at a glance, they are more likely to not open every little bit of the kit. Let's see how it goes. Other things simply need a bag in case they spill. The plastic that was used is of the "eco" kind. I know: not ideal either, but a tiny bit better.
And now the important bit: the sign-up link will appear at the top of the course page. You might need to refresh the page several times before it appears. You will only be able to pay with PayPal. And I won't be able to ship kits together to safe on postage. Shipping is still disrupted and the risk of losing multiple kits in one shipment is simply too large.
You might also have spotted some changes to my website. I've tried to make it less cluttered and hope that information can now be more easily found. One major change is that I have made category pages for my blog articles. If you hover over the blog category at the top of my page, a sub-menu will appear (see picture above). Over the next couple of weeks, I will go through all my past blog articles, clean them up and the ones about historical embroidery will be linked to these category pages. These pages will be nice little rabbit holes for a rainy day!

Just can't wait!
Thank you, Claire! It is a nice trip down memory lane. And I am quite amazed by how much I have written over the years.
HI Jessica - how exciting all this sounds! I will definitely try to be one of your 15 students this time, I miss embroidery and would love to learn something new. So registration is done directly on the web page of the course? and not via the Shop?
Thank you Marina! I hope you make it in this time. The payment will be processed through the shop, but the link (picture + button) will be up on the course page for easy access. It will look the same as the links to the free PDF-handouts on the Imperial Goldwork Course page.
I am also hoping to be one of the lucky. If not, then I hope to catch the next class.
Good luck, Erin!
Well I missed out by minutes. :( Had it in my card and gone. Have a wonderful course everyone. Not my time for this round. :(
Hope to be one of the lucky 15, and I’d not hope you decide to run it again.
Good luck, Carol Ann!
I’m going to have a go at getting a place on the course. Fingers crossed I’m lucky this time .
Good luck, Jane!
Another Corol-Anne hoping to make the cut this time, fingers crossed
It went within two minutes, Rachel! And it is a nice diverse bunch. Looking forward to meeting them all in September!
heel jammer maar ook deze keer weer niet gelukt ! succes iedereen
Wat jammer, Mabel! Ik hoop de cursus volgend jaar ook aan te bieden. Maar in de toekomst kijken is op het moment zo onzeker.
I cannot believe how quickly that sold out. Commiserations to those who were not lucky. Congratulations to those who were, see you in September :-D
Me neither, Carol-Anne! That was crazy :)
Yay, I was lucky this time! I look forward to this autumn, see you all then!
Glad you made it, Marina!
