Course Description

This workshop is based around a collection of Ottoman textiles purchased in the mid-eighties from the island of Crete. Their unique combination of stitches, and relationship of ground to stitched mark will inspire your own personal journey of thread and cloth.  Cross stitch, gold thread work, pulled work, outlining and ‘filling in’ all have their role to play. A rare workshop taught in colour by Amanda who will share her obsession about these qualities of ‘oldness’ and the importance of informing ourselves through history and tradition, combined with our contemporary response…..
