Join us for a 2 day class to learn Opus Anglicanum with Tanya Bentham. Tanya is one of the leading tutors in Medieval embroidery and Opus Anglicanum embroidery. Tanya’s embroideries are completed with good humour. Places on this class are extremely limited and full payment will be required upfront.

Please ensure that you are available for the 2 days and are able to get to our Warrington studio, the studio is close to the town centre and has links to the train network and motorway network.

We will be completing a beautiful female ginger angel, learning underside couching and focus on the face and halo.

‘opus anglicanum’ is Latin for ‘English work’ it was used to describe the luxurious and highly sought after embroidered items made in around the 13th century, with silk and gold and silver threads

Underside couching is a technique whereby the gold thread was laid on the surface of the two or three layers of taut cloth. A linen thread was then brought up through the layers of cloth and allowed to encircle the metal thread lying on the top. The linen thread was returned to the back of the layers through the same hole. The linen thread was pulled gently until a loop of gold thread appeared on the back of the linen layer.

Please note that there is a £30 additional charge for the kit payable directly to Tanya
