Times: 10am – 4pm
This course will begin with a detailed lecture of 16th and 17th century men’s caps and women’s coifs, worked in coloured silk work.
Coloured silk work uses a variety of stitches based on detached buttonhole stitch and students will sample all these stitches. The metal thread stitchery found on many of these caps and coifs will also be considered and these stitches will also be worked as samples.
Students will then have the opportunity to work motifs based on Tudor designs – scroll down for examples.
This is a notebook course with samples.
