On Sunday, July 10, 2022, textile artist and teacher Kathy Andrews will be joining us for a virtual lecture on Elizabethan Embroidery And The Trevelyon Miscellany Of 1608.
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.
