Our Needlework Tours & Residential Retreats
We host immersive needlework retreats and tours in the UK and Ireland for the historic needlework enthusiast. Hosted by Phillipa Turnbull and other embroidery specialists and tutors, these experiences are a bucket list essential for anyone wishing to take their needlework to the next level.
We take a maximum of twelve people in each class and all of our projects are created especially for us by top international embroidery tutors including Jenny Adin-Christie, Nicola Jarvis, Meredith Willett, Kate Barlow, Alison Cole, Jane Nicholas, Jacqui Carey, Aiburn Calrie-Lucas, Zinaida Kazban, Jessica Grimm, Sarah Thursfield and Phillipa Turnbull.
"Our retreats combine hand-embroidery tuition with private visits to castles and museums in Britain and Ireland and specialist lectures on a wide range of embroidery subjects. Join us to study textiles from 16th-20th Century and explore the original techniques, beautiful designs and fascinating history, which influence and inform modern embroidery."
