Sarah Homfray returns to the V&A for this one day workshop to share skills outlined in Embroidery: A Makers Guide (Thames & Hudson / V&A Publishing), a new practical book containing 15 step-by-step projects inspired by museum pieces from around the world. In this class, you will try your hand at the Opus Anglicanum medieval embroidery technique. Sarah will guide you step by step through this Green Man design, working split stitch fillings, surface couching and underside couching.
All materials provided, suitable for beginners.
