A&S: Osenstitch Viking Embroidery

This class will feature the Osenstitch and variations that was found in the Birka and Ousegate digs. The class will go over a brief history of the find and area. The embroidery is based off of Anges Geijer’s doctorate thesis on the Birka dig and her sketches of the embroidery stitch. We will also do a modern variant called the Hungarian Braid Stitch. Class will run for 45 minutes. There will be 6 hoops and thread ready for the class but people are welcome to bring their own materials. Handouts available: 10.
