Description
Opus Anglicanum is often considered the pinnacle of medieval English embroidery. During this class, we will take a closer look at what defines this style of embroidery, its fascinating history, and review the materials used. Special focus will be given to the metallic embroidery as seen in the shimmering gold backgrounds, and sometimes figures, of Opus Anglicanum.
