Painting With Your Needle
Embroidery Based on Illumination
Challenger: Lady Rennewief van Grunewald
Throughout SCA period there are clear parallels between the art in embroidery and the art in illumination. The challenge before you is to execute an embroidery which draws from a period illumination for design inspiration. Any illumination from very early period to late period scrollwork is fair game.
Documentation should include the inspiration illumination and thoughts on your process. "Extra points" for an embroidery using stitches and materials appropriate to the time period of the inspiration illumination.
