I’m really excited to announce that I’ll be teaching this lovely piece through Knally Embroidery later this year. It’ll be online and you can find out more details here: https://www.embroideryknally.co.uk/ourshop/prod_7832016-September-with-Alex-Makin-ONLINE.html
The design is based on / inspired by a 6th-century horse harness excavated in Winchester, where Embroidery Knally is based. The colours were inspired by pieces from Sutton Hoo. All worked on handwoven linen in hand and naturally dyed wool threads using a handmade needle. The finished piece is 8cm wide.
