2 day Course – 28th & 29th July
Embroidery was a costly item, showing the wealth and status of the wearer. Many embroideries were made separately as guards or slips and applied then removed from a garment to be recycled onto another, or simply cut away from an item of clothing and placed on a further one.The School’s collection of re-usable embroidery pieces dating from the mid-sixteenth century shows a wide variety of techniques which students will try in silk and metal threads including cut/applied work, or nué and couching.
