Learn the delicate art of 17th-century beadwork with Royal School of Needlework tutor, Deborah Wilding. Inspired by our Beadwork Basket from c.1660-70, in this workshop you will learn how to make your own beadwork sample based on the designs and colours of the original basket. You will explore the beaded and embroidered textiles in our Posnett Gallery, and discover how to create patterns and structure using beads and wire.

A class kit, complete with all the tools and materials you will need, will be available to purchase from Deborah on the day.
