For beginners with little or no experience in cross stitch

Learn about 17th century samplers and get a feel for some of the stitches used with Eilene Cross, a scholar in 17th century sampler stitching techniques. Make a beautiful piece to take home that will look very much like the original in the Museum's Sampled Lives exhibition (Band Sampler, 1653, inscribed ‘Elizabeth Billingsley’), but executed in slightly simpler stitches including cross stitch, double running (blackwork) and satin filling stitches.

No prior stitching experience necessary, and all material provided. Kit includes linen, silk threads, needle and instructions. Students will need to bring scissors, additional lighting and magnification if needed.

 

Booking essential. To register your interest tel: 01223 332904 or email: education@fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk. Places will be confirmed on receipt of payment.
