Historical Stitches: Introduction to Wool Embroidery

$225

with Shelagh Jessop at the Waterford Craft School

CalendarApr 27, 2024 at 9 am

Class Description: Spend a relaxing afternoon learning the basics of wool embroidery (or crewel wool embroidery) with Stuart Moores Textiles’ plant dyed wool embroidery floss and fabric. We will cover all of the stitching techniques necessary to create a small embroidered motif inspired by 18th century wool embroidery. Each student will receive all of the materials needed to create a motif in class as well as a pattern and all of the materials needed to make a large embroidered pin keep (biscornu) at home.

This workshop is being taught in conjunction with the Loudoun Museum. There will be a presentation and talks about the history of needlework in Loudoun County throughout the day.  To register, click here.
