Details

In this class you will learn one of the oldest forms of embroidery in Britain: silk shading. This is the type of work you might see in Opus Anglicanum alongside beautiful goldwork – the faces and beautiful draped garments of figures are embroidered using this technique, and of course it is often used to create stunning flowers that you could almost pluck from the fabric.
