Traditional Icelandic Embroidery 102 

w/ Justin Allan-Spencer

1-3:30pm

Note: participants should plan to attend both sessions.

In this two-session, two-week class, students will learn six traditional Icelandic counted-thread embroidery techniques and will create a spectacular sampler showcasing eye-catching motifs and designs from 17th to 19th Century manuscripts.

This accelerated class is geared towards intermediate to experienced embroiderers. Additional support is available at the monthly Nordic Museum Knit Cafe, which takes place the first Sunday of every month. Class is limited to 20 attendees, who are expected to attend both sessions.

About the instructor: Justin Allan-Spencer comes from a family of accomplished needle-workers; both his mother and grandmother have created sizable collections utilizing a variety of techniques. Justin has been practicing embroidery for over thirty years. In 2014, he started to recreate the 1000+ traditional patterns collected in the Íslensk Sjónabók (Icelandic Pattern Book).
