Classes for Coronet:

From Pop to Pincushion: Pop Cap Pincushions, A Quick and Easy Largesse Project

Instructor: THL Elspeth Selwode. Cost $3.00 for handout & materials,  2hrs (10AM-12PM)

Do you have a desire to create largesse, but feel you only possess basic sewing skills? If so, then this is the class for you! Learn how to use scrap fabrics, remnant trim and a few basic stitches to create attractive and useful largesse items that anyone will love. This class is open to anyone age 8 and up who can thread a needle without hitting an artery. You should be able to leave the class with a completed, basic pincushion. If there is enough time, we will work on embellishment.

Please bring scissors if you have them, as well as any trim scraps you might like to incorporate. All other materials will be provided, as well as a handout with photo tutorial and examples of stitches used.


Bees, Medieval vs Modern Husbandry

Instructor: HE Katherine atte Moure. Cost $0, 2hrs (12-2PM)

Humans have been stealing wax and honey for centuries, come learn how!  Want to be a cool sca person and keep bees the medieval way?  Too bad, you can't.  Come to my class and stay out of jail! 


Introduction to Embroidery 

Instructor:  HL Aelana Cordovera. Cost $4, limit 8 students, 2hrs (2-4 PM)

We will work on a “doodle cloth” to introduce ten embroidery stitches with a variety of threads. Depending on the experience of the students running, back stitch, seed, satin and cross stitch will be explored. Stem or outline, herringbone, buttonhole or blanket stitches and chain and couching will be taught. These stitches can easily be elaborated in a further class into the more familiar styles of different times and places.

Hoops are available to loan and cloth, needles and threads will be supplied. Students may bring small scissors and thimbles.


16th Century Thread Wrapped Buttons

Instructor: HL Porzia di Corbino Rosso. Cost $4, 2 hrs (2-4PM), minimum 2 students

An introduction to 16th century thread wrapped buttons, and instruction in and demonstration of their manufacture. This is a hands-on class, and students will make (at least) one thread wrapped button.  The materials used, method of production, different styles, and end use of buttons will be covered. Other types and styles of buttons will also be noted, in comparisson to thread wrapped buttons. 

Students will receive a comprehensive handout if they register in advance. The handout for this course is my documentation from my Principality A&S entry, as it includes images of extant buttons, step by step illustration of button manufacture, and a bibiliography. :)  Late registrants are always welcome, and I am happy to provide them with a digital version of the handout if hardcopies are no longer available at the time of the class. 

Students should bring scissors and darning needle.
