Monday 27th July to Friday 31st July

Create your own Medieval Illuminated Manuscript panel! Using mixed media and stitch, we'll use wooden printing blocks, fonts, bronzing powders, paint, fimo and metal shim to create letters and tiles all appliquéd to an embroidered background of stump work creatures, fruits and perhaps some calligraphy. Use traditional goldwork or machine stitch to further embellish your piece. I am happy to have a beginners session on free machine embroidery. This week is suitable for beginners and improvers alike. Finished pieces have been popular to mark births, birthdays and anniversaries using a combination of two letters.
There will be a charge of about £5 to cover bronzing powders, paint etc. if you do not bring your own. I can also get silk if notified ahead of time. Most embroiderers will have everything required, but a list of materials will be provided later and additional bits and pieces can be bought.
