A journey through 500-years of embroidered history
Our talk will begin about 1000 years ago with the magnificent goldwork embroideries that are held in Bamberg, Germany and then end in the early 16th-century with mass-produced goldwork orphreys from the Netherlands. In between, we will explore spectacular examples of Stumpwork embroidery from Central Europe. Throughout this talk, we will learn why certain techniques and materials were dropped in favor of others and how the invention of printing made particular designs go viral.
Dr. Jessica Grimm studied archaeology at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands and hand-embroidery at the Royal School of Needlework. Combining her academic and hands-on skills, she researches and recreates medieval goldwork embroidery. Currently, Jessica compiles a database of all medieval goldwork embroidery from Europe.
