Metal thread embroidery (or gold work) is an exciting and challenging technique. From prehistoric origins in the East, the skills travelled slowly west, reaching a peak in England with the great medieval period of embroidery, when the highly-regarded English work was in demand all over Europe. Today, metal thread is still used for ecclesiastical and ceremonial items but contemporary embroiderers also use it in more experimental ways.
