Class Description: This class is inspired by a motif found in traditional Jacobean Embroidery. Crewelwork is a type of surface embroidery that uses wool and is at least a thousand years old. Jacobean is a form of crewel work that is used for fanciful plant and animal shapes. In this class, wool is stitched on linen twill, using stitches such as long and short shading, satin stich, whipped wheels, trellis, buttonhole, bullion knots and seeding to create texture and delicate details.
Equipment Needed: All materials are supplied; you may bring your own sewing kit if you like
