Description
Underside couching is one of the identifying characteristics of Opus Anglicanum. Many classes in OA focus on the split stitch aspect, which deserves and needs at least an hour's instruction. The underside couching aspect isn't able to be covered. The technique is actually very simple and easily learned, but I had trouble envisioning it until I was shown how to do it. This class is designed to address this issue, since others may be having the same problem I was,
