Elizabethan Stitches
Event Description:
British Embroidery flourished in the Elizabethan era, literally. As Botanicals and Herbals were printed and made available to the masses, English embroiderers engaged in a frenzy of stitch activity.  Flowers, plants, birds, bugs and beasts were embroidered on everything from book-bindings, caps, coifs, dresses, jackets, long cushions, bags, gloves, caskets (embroidered boxes) and even tooth cloths. New fruits such as the strawberry were introduced as were many new flowers and other plants. Images spread far and wide and the Elizabethan embroiderer keenly copied them from books to play with threads on fabric. Join Gail Harker and Penny Peters on this unique study course.
