Opus Aglicanum (alms purse)
Gold Bullion embroidery (sleeve appliques)
Elizabethan Blackwork (ladies coif)
Baroque embroidery (18th century pocket)
Regency embroidery (1790-1825 reticule)
Weekend workshops dedicated to discovering the lost art of some of the most
stunning embroidery of history. Period-correct techniques are taught, so
you're going to learn how to embroider the way it has been done for hundreds
of years. It is my goal to send people away on overload. The workshops are
project-oriented, so you'll have a 'thing' at the end of it all, likely not
finished that weekend, but certainly well on its way.
