Bespoke Embroidery: Inspired by Queen Mary's Bow Shoes (1935)

This class is now sold out

Royal School of Needlework Tutor Lisa Bilby will be teaching a bespoke embroidery class at the Fashion Museum Bath on Saturday 21 July 2018. The class is suitable for all levels and is inspired by gold brocade shoes with diamante bows worn by Queen Mary, wife of King George V, in 1935.

Working on silk, you will recreate an element of the shoe in the beautiful silk embroidery popular at the time of George V's wedding to Mary. You will also have an opportunity to view the shoes at the Fashion Museum as part of the Royal Women exhibition.

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.
