Bayeaux Beastie: 11th Century Couched and Laid Work • March 8

, ,

Tuesday, March 8, 1 – 4 pm

Peg Deppe

Explore medieval iconography as we stitch a whimsical beastie from the Bayeaux tapestery. Learn about the Bayeaux tapestry and its role in recording the events of the Battle of Hastings, 1066. Then, create a beast of your own using stem stitch, and couched and laid work – where long float yarns are secured to the ground fabric with a series of additional stitches. Take your piece home to create a needle book, pincushion, gift bag, or other small memento! Suitable for beginners or those who’ve never tried topside couching. Materials fee $15, payable to instructor.
