Join us 4-17 July 2021 for a needlework extravaganza in Appleby and The Eden Valley. Workshops, lectures and other activities will take place in celebration of historic needlework and hand embroidery techniques.
Specialist embroidery tutors from America, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand and the UK will lead 1, 2 and 3 day workshops in Elizabethan, Medieval, Jacobean and Arts & Crafts embroidery with techniques including Gold Work, Mountmellick, Silk Shading, Stump Work, Crewel Work, Needlepoint and black Work. Students will be able to build their own itineraries of workshops, lectures and excursions paying a bespoke price depending on their choice. Accommodation will not be included in the price so the full range of local options will be available to those attending.
Booking for the festival will begin in October 2019. If you would like to express an interest in this event, either as a participant or a provider, please click here.
