Tanya Bentham on Medieval Embroidery and the Creation of Opus Anglicanum

About this event

Tanya Bentham was born and brought up in the north east of England. Tanya is a self taught embroidery artist who focuses their interest on historical works, and the author of Oppusanglicanum Tanya first picked up a needle to decorate a re-enactment costume, and began blogging the process of making. Tanya’s obsession revolves around medieval marginalia as well as the Luttrell psalter. Tanya is currently working on a series of wall hangings based on it and has progressed to the 4th in the series.

Tanya interprets contemporary subjects into expressions of historical embroidery with a delightful sense of fun, adding such details as a goat with a bow tie and a Cadbury cream egg. Tanya spends time both teaching medieval embroidery as well as historical interpretation.

Tanya will be discussing process, inspiration and the creation of the book Opus Anglicanum.
