Kate's Festival Workshops

Little Elizabethan Stork

UK Time Zone: 6-8 May 2021

US Time Zone: 14-16 May 2021

Using beautiful silk floss threads you will create this little stork that has been inspired by a pair of embroidered 17th century gauntlet gloves in the V&A museum in London. He stands on a hillock of blue laidwork and is surrounded by silk flowers, gilt tendrils and gilt cutwork leaves. Tiny spangles are added for extra sparkle before adding a frame of looped and cutwork corner decorations.
