Crewelwork

During the course you will learn how to stitch beautiful Jacobean-style motifs using a variety of hand embroidery stitches such as grid stitch, French knots, long and short, chain stitch and stem stitch. Jacobean crewel work designs are based around stylised mythical plants, pods and animals. They are traditionally embroidered in crewel wool on linen twill fabric. These will be available on the course, but if you prefer a modern day twist, other fabrics and threads can be used. You can either work a design supplied by the teacher, or you can bring your own work along.
