courses I’m teaching this year
Ok, so these are the dates I’ve got lined up for courses this year.
Please note you can’t book any of these through me, you have to go via the institutions where they’re happening.
All are in early medeival techniques, using naturally dyed
All of these will be at the ashmolean museum, oxford. Bookings are not yet on the ashmolean events system ( I will update when they are) but you can contact Jude Barrett, the person in charge, to book, on email@example.com
You can also find Jude’s full contact details on the ashmolean website, including phone number
17th ( or it could be 16th, I might have got the two muddled, check with Jude) August, 19th September, and 22nd November. Three day opus Anglicanum course. 1st day focuses on design and drapery, second on faces, third on finishing, backgrounds and goldwork.
16th( or could be 17th, see above for muddlings) August one day workshop on medieval appliqué, focusing in particular on gilded leather appliqués like the Tristram hanging. The aim being to complete a small article of usefulness like an ipad cover or small cushion.
3rd October, freehand blackwork ( or red,) workshop. The aim being to make a Christmas decoration, so as well as embroidery this one will encompass some simple passementarie depending on progress.
These are in association with the exhibition of the feller collection, which looks exciting in it’s
July 6th. Medieval trees again at the INternational Medeival Congress in Leeds. I’m not actually sure whether this one is open to non-delegates or not, but if you contact the IMC office and ask Marta you can probably persuade her as I know that last year the university were chuntering about wanting to get more members of the public involved in the congress. The full programme doesn’t appear to be online yet, but this is the main site, and you can contact them here
July 26th, Tullie House Museum, Carlisle. Medeival beasties. They only booked about a week ago, so again this one isn’t online yet, but if you ring them you will be able to book direct
I can also arrange extra dates for individuals and groups, please contact me for further details
