Crewel embroidery began to gain popularity in England in the late sixteenth century, designs were usually free-flowing floral patterns, and mostly worked in wool threads. However, for this course we will be working the lovely Jacobean designs in fine threads and including organza fabrics to give the embroidery a fresh delicate look.

We will cover a good selection of stitches and designs, with information on other interesting techniques to try at home. This course is suitable for all abilities.
