Monday 30th July to Friday 3rd August

Create your own medieval illuminated manuscript panel!
Using mixed media and stitch, printing blocks, fonts, bronzing powders, paint and metal shim to create letters and tiles. Appliqué these to an embroidered background of stumpwork creatures, fruits and perhaps some calligraphy. Hand or machine stitch in traditional goldwork techniques or something more contemporary, can further embellish your piece and if you bring your machine I am happy to have a session on free machine embroidery. Finished pieces have been popular to mark births, birthdays and special occasions using a combination of two letters.
There will be a small charge of about £3 to cover bronzing powders, paint etc. if you do not bring your own. I can also get silk if notified ahead of time. A full list of materials will be provided later and I will bring additional bits and pieces which could be bought.
