This crewelwork pincushion was custom-designed for our Textile Arts Council workshops. The motif was inspired by the May Morris-designed bed hangings on William Morris’s bed at Kelmscott Manor. It incorporates the Rose Wreath Panel, designed by William Morris and stitched by May. The pincushion was created using crewel wool on a linen ground and stitched in the authentic fashion of May Morris.
In this three hour class, suitable for beginners, instruction will be given in how the stitches are worked and how they have evolved over time. You will learn Long and Short Stitch, Satin Stitch, Trellis Stitch and Stem Stitch to create this beautiful design.
Students will receive a kit with the necessary supplies, including a hoop and the filling for the pincushion. All you will need to supply is a pair of scissors.
