Art embroidery workshop

The Education Studio, The Harley Gallery and Portland Collection, Worksop, Notts

Thursday, 18 August - Friday, 19 August 2022, 10.00am - 5.00pm

We will be running  a two-day workshop exploring crewel work techniques to create an embroidered panel inspired by the ‘Welbeck Harebells roundel’: the Arts and Crafts relief plasterwork found in Welbeck Abbey’s Print Corridor, designed by Victorian architects John Dando Sedding and Henry Wilson. A guided tour of Welbeck Abbey’s State Rooms is included within this workshop. Participants will use a range of crewel embroidery stitches, including long and short stitch, satin stitch variations, stem stitch, twisted chain stitch, couching and various knot stitches with fine wools and silks to work the roundel on a linen ground.

Participants should bring a 10-inch ring frame, embroidery scissors and a magnifier if required.  

Price: This two-day workshop costs £250 per person. The cost of the workshop includes materials, lunch and refreshments, and a Welbeck Abbey State Room Tour.

Please note, the Welbeck Abbey State Room Tour will leave promptly at 10.30am, participants should arrive no later than 10.15 and report to the gallery reception.
