About this lecture: The Trevelyon Miscellany of 1608 is best known for a series of embroidery designs, which have become a treasure trove for embroiderers and costume designers. Unpainted motifs of carnations, roses, cowslips and columbine, acorn and oak leaves fill the pages.
Thomas Trevelyon, a London craftsman of whom little is known, created his miscellany in 1608 when he was about 60 years old. In addition to the embroidery designs, it includes is a collection of handwritten notes and drawings covering many topics that Trevelyon felt were important to record.
A brief overview of the concept of a miscellany will be explained. We will see a facsimile of the Miscellany and explore the embroidery designs within. Participants will see both period and current examples of embroidered pieces whose designs are inspired/taken from the Miscellany.

Coming Soon: Bojagi, Stitching and Wrapping Happiness with Youngmin Lee — Bojagi (Korean Wrapping Cloths) are pieced together from small scraps of cloth. It is the most unique form of Korean textile art. Bojagi occupied a prominent place in the daily lives of Koreans of all classes. They were used to wrap or carry everything from precious ritual objects to everyday clothes and common household goods and also to cover food.
