Tanya Bentham on Medieval Embroidery and the Creation of Opus Anglicanum
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.0
