Thank you so much for this article and video. I have visited the V & A every time I’ve been to London but never the Clothworkers Museum. I am very tempted to book one of your tours/retreats but I live in Sydney, Australia so have to really plan this. Are you coming to Sydney anytime soon?

Such a wonderful article on the Clothworker’s Museum. I can’t imagine how exciting it was to see some of their beautiful pieces , especially the Elizabethan redwork waistcoat. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Phillipa that was so enlightening and I didn’t know that museum existed. A must for my next visit to London. When are you coming to Australia?

Thank you so much for sharing, Phillipa. I would have loved to shadow you on your visit. I am just in awe of the collection and history. Thank you for bringing it to life for us.

New Zealand?? Is your trip an official tour or a private holiday? If you are giving any talks, I would love to know where and when! I live in Porirua, just north of Wellington.

I now know what I want for my 70th, birthday, next year. A train journey from Texas to New York then book a passage on the Cunard to the British Isles, segue (maybe) to London, to see such fine work.

I was ignorant of redwork’s long history. Another style to explore. I remember seeing your alter piece and I’m looking forward to a release of Three Kings.

Excellent article. Beautiful pieces! I didn’t even know I liked textiles this much until my trip/retreat with Lady Anne’s . Yay!
