Opus Anglicanum literally means English Work. This was the name for a period of English embroidery that was renowned throughout Europe and beyond. It only came to an end when the Black Death swept across the world, wiping out most of the English embroiderers skilled in this technique and leaving the way open for the quicker, and therefore cheaper, techniques of Tapestry Shading and surface couching of metal threads from abroad to take precedence.

The technique made use of split stitch in lustrous silk floss along with underside couching worked in metal passing threads. ‘Matilda' will start you off in this beautiful technique.

The inspiration for the face of Matilda came from the Steeple Aston cope, where a lady can be seen riding on a dragon. This cope was worked between 1330-40 in silver threads and coloured silk floss. Named after Steeple Aston in Oxfordshire, from where it originally came, it is now on loan to the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

There will be plenty of opportunity during the class to ask the Tutor questions.

The class kit will be posted out to you. Your kit includes everything you need including a full colour, step by step instruction booklet. The only things you’ll need are an 8” ring frame, and embroidery scissors. It would be useful to have a pencil and paper in case you wish to take extra notes.

You can explore many more stitches on the RSN Stitch Bank.
