Everyone knows laid and couched work as the stitch used for the Bayeux Tapestry, but most people aren’t aware that it was used all over medieval Europe for hundreds of years.
This workshop will be using naturally dyed wools to get as close to true medieval colours as possible we will explore this fun and versatile technique using images from the margins of medieval manuscripts like the Luttell psalter. A choice of designs will be provided and you can chose your own colours.
If you have a frame please bring it, otherwise one will be provided for use during class.
All materials are included
