Have a go at Jacobean Crewel Embroidery with tutor Debbie Hotchkiss and take away your own Jacobean Flora

Taking its name from the use of crewel wool on linen, crewel embroidery developed in the 17th century with beautiful Jacobean-style designs influenced by exotic nature and wildlife. Traditionally designs use different shades from just two main colours, but crewel stitches now are also used in contemporary designs. Crewelwork is an ideal technique to learn for beginners, offering useful stitches to master and an understanding of colours and tonal shades.

In this workshop:

Learn traditional crewel embroidery using a Jacobean Flora design, inspired by the nature and colours of Spring. Debbie will take you through the steps needed to create this beautiful design and teach you the traditional stitches for crewel embroidery.

You’ll receive a kit containing all the materials needed alongside instructions to create your flora. A frame and scissors will also be loaned to you for the day.

Debbie Hotchkiss has a Certificate from the Royal School of Needlework in Jacobean Crewel Embroidery.
