March 26th 10.30-4.30

Dark Age Embroidery Class - Beginners

Have you ever wanted to produce your own Bayeux tapestry or Mammen embroidered cloak? Let’s get you started. In this one day class we will be examining embroidery imagery and technique in dark age Britain and Europe, looking especially at the patterns and techniques of “opus anglicanum” and commencing a small scale embroidery project to your own design suitable for using as purse or a cushion insert.

Participants will need to supply their own medium sized wooden square roller frame and one quarter of a metre of small hole pre-shrunk embroidery linen – the session will start with examining and drawing out a pattern, then mounting and tensioning the linen onto the frame as well as working cottons, needles and synthetic embroidery threads
