About the Event

In this encore class, (last presented at National 2016), you will get an in-depth look into historically accurate embroidery techniques, colors, and materials in the popular crewelwork style of the Elizabethan and Jacobean period. The lecture portion of this workshop will examine the historical context and importance of crewelwork needlework, and is accompanied by a discussion of period stitches and embellishment using a spot motif from a rare manuscript of embroidery patterns published in 1608.  We are also selling a separate kit of this motif if you are interested in working on these stitches yourself.

This class is designed for students with an interest in historical needlework pursuing a mastery of period stitches, motifs, and aesthetic. At the end of this course, students will have a thorough understanding of the significance of crewel work in the Elizabethan period.
