Bespoke Embroidery: Inspired by 1902 Coronation Glove


The date for this event has passed. Please check What's on for current events.

This class is now sold out.

Royal School of Needlework Tutor Deborah Wilding will be teaching a bespoke embroidery class at the Fashion Museum Bath on Saturday 16 June 2018. The class is suitable for all levels and is inspired by the duplicate of the ceremonial glove worn by Queen Alexandra at the Coronation of King Edward Vll in 1902.

In the class you will create a version of the gold embroidery used on the glove and you will also have an opportunity to view the duplicate glove as part of the exhibition Royal Women, on display in the Fashion Museum galleries.

The class kit, available to buy on the day for £30 (cash only), will include everything you require to complete the project. You may like to bring your own embroidery scissors and you will be able to borrow ring frames, magnifiers and lights (if needed) on the day.

The workshop runs from 10.00am to 4.00pm and all attendees must be comfortable climbing stairs. The class takes place in the Fashion Museum Study Facilities, which is on the first floor of the Assembly Rooms. The class includes a ticket to the Fashion Museum, valid for a month from the date of the class. Book now.
