23rd May, basics of medieval goldwork
24th May, medieval border patterns in silk and gold
5th June, freehand Elizabethan blackwork, not all that relevant here, but I am teaching it
6th June, laid and couched work trees (bayeux tapestry stitch, done with veg dyed threads)
And the opus Anglicanum course is running again on the 27th June, 15th august, and26th September (three day course). more information on the styles being taught is at my blog.

I’m also doing a medieval appliqué course at the imc, leeds, on the 5th July, which is open to non delegates. To book speak to Marta Cobb at
