Before I'll begin my summerly blog break until the 5th of September, I have some exciting news to share with you: The Medieval Embroidery Study Group is now open to all Patrons of the Master tier! With the exception of August, we will meet each month for a lecture and subsequent Q&A. We will meet via Zoom and the meetings are recorded and made available as part of your Master subscription. Each lecture will be about a piece of medieval embroidery I have seen in a museum. You will already be broadly familiar with the piece as it will have been featured in a blog post shortly before. This enables you to come up with questions for the Q&A. Even when you cannot attend live, you are very welcome to submit your question. Upcoming Zoom meetings will be announced on Patreon and in my newsletter. All current Patrons already have access to the recording of the Königsfelden Antependia of last Sunday. Zoom meetings will be on Saturday or Sunday evenings 19h CE(S)T.
The next meeting of the Medieval Embroidery Study Group will be on Saturday evening the 23rd of September at 19h CEST. We will explore the Grandson antependium held at the Historischen Museum Bern. The parts of the antependium date to the last quarter of the 13th century and the first quarter of the 14th century. It combines surface couching with underside couching. A very interesting piece indeed!
Have a lovely summer and see you on the blog, and hopefully, in the Medieval Embroidery Study Group lectures in September!
