Elizabethan Moth by Zinaida Kazban
The design is inspired by a 17th century embroidered panel that depicts flowers and insects in metalworked frames. The moth is stitched with beautiful flat silks using techniques from the Elizabethan period. It is placed inside a richly embellished goldwork frame worked with three different types of goldwork threads and tiny gilt spangles.
The design is a part of an Elizabethan series of classes that explore historic embroidery techniques and designs around the theme of stylised flowers and insects in various metalwork frames.
Linen fabric with an image on it, a variety of goldwork threads, silk embroidery threads, gilt spangles, needles, plus step-by-step kit instructions.
