Blackwork originated in Tudor England, commonly thought to have been introduced to the country by Katharine of Aragon. This design by Cathy is worked on Aida fabric and includes two geometric blackwork patterns, highlighted with some goldwork, not uncharacteristic of the period. The embroidery measures approximately 8" x 8" and is shown in a 10" embroidery hoop.
Suitability - Intermediate Suitable for those with some experience of embroidery. If you are a beginner, it is suggested that you work the Blackwork Honey Bees first.
About the Workshop The design is pre-printed onto the Aida fabric for you. You will learn to work two different geometric patterns, commonly known as 'diapers', as well as shading techniques and some goldwork elements. This workshop is not suitable for complete beginners.
