Class dates: 3/15/12 - 6/15/12

This 3-month cyber workshop, beginning March 15th, explores both historical techniques of silk and metal thread embroidery through the ages, in addition to traditional/composite canvas stitches. This 10" by 10" geometric design is on #18 canvas in two color families of silk (or cotton) plus metallics. The techniques include:gobelin pattern with trellis, pattern couching, Sprat's Head, Japanese filling variations, composite mosaic pattern, couched silk grounds and composite tied satin filing.
 
Jane discovered the design concept in the set decoration of her favorite opera, Otello, this production performed at La Scala in Milian in 2001 with Placido Domingo in his most celebrated role. The colorway to the right was the basic color scheme of this production. It makes a smashing piece of needlework.
