A Lavaliere.. is an ornamental pendant worn around the neck. The pendant could likewise easily find a home as a brooch.. or small artwork.

This beautiful specialised signature stitch has been a part of Trish Bygott's distinctive approach for over 30 years.
As seen in our collection for last year's Fremantle fashion Collective, it lends itself deliciously to the application of personal adornment..  

Develop your own magical symbol.. or talisman of sorts..  to pair with any outfit.. for casual or inspired wear. This technique produces a richly textured.. lustrous piece of cloth.. with which to fashion your own unique pendant.. wearable.. or otherwise.
A  3 week course..    $240 tuition + $35 materials
$275 inclusive..    contact us  for all enquiries..
Thursdays,  6:00pm-9pm June 7th.. 14th.. & 21st..

Stitches such as fishbone, cretan, blanket, backstitch, long and short, laid work, satin and bullion.  all lend themselves beautifully to this silk-stitch method. 
To stitch with this technique.. lends a looseness, a painterly quality.. a certain naivety.. abstract texture.. and patterning.
Over 3 sessions.. Trish will guide you through all of the steps required to design.. stitch.. and assemble your pendant with a hand-stitched linen cord for you to wear.. pompoms.. or other specialty finishes..
if desired.
Templates will also be supplied for those who wish to choose from a range of Trish's designs.

Materials are included in the fee for this workshop. 
These include a palette of suitable silks for you to choose from.. suitable needles.. embroidery hoops and threads.. MDF and linen to complete your project.
Please bring along your own pair of scissors, and your own thimble if you use one.
