Join Historical Embroiderer Sue Ottley Hughes and enjoy a day of creating and embroidering a linen piece in black thread inspired by the animals, fruits and flowers of the embroidered linen clothes of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, whilst discussing how textile and embroidery works featured in the households of York in the period from the reign of Elizabeth I to the time of the English Civil War.
Feel free to bring books and pictures which inspire you, or choose an emblem or piece from our research library, which we will help you draw onto linen which you can then start to embroider. The finished patch piece can be used as the centre of a cushion, a part of a bag or garment or framed as a picture, whatever you wish after the class.
