Jacobean Crewel work workshops
"This ‘Curly Leaf’ crewel work kit is an original design created by Helen McCook which has drawn its inspiration from embroidery of the Jacobean period in Britain. It is bold, voluptuous and abundant with its motifs and celebrates the movement and strongly feminine lines for which Jacobean embroidery is so synonymous.

The class offers a range of surface stitch styles which means that you can be introduced to a few different approaches to working surface embroidery. Each stitch will be demonstrated and explained and then Helen will work around the group to give individual attention to your tension/style/technique to help with your development. She will also discuss some of the background history of design and embroidery of this period whilst you stitch." - Helen McCook
