The Bayeux Tapestry is one of the most famous pieces of medieval fiber art. It is not a woven tapestry as the name would imply, but a series of large pieces of embroidery that depict the Battle of Hastings in 1066 and the events leading up to William the Conqueror's invasion of England.
With fiber arts instructor Heather Evert, explore the story and figures of the embroidery through an artist talk. Then, try your hand at the Bayeux stitch and the stem/outline stitch used to create the historic piece, using wool threads and linen fabric. Each student will receive a complete supply kit so they can take home their creation and continue to work on their own tapestry.
