Sunshine & Clouds inspired by a 17th Century Raised Embroidery Panel at the Holburne Museum

Join the Royal School of Needlework and the Holburne Museum, Bath on 3 September for this exclusive Raised Embroidery partnership class inspired by the museum’s upcoming exhibition Marvellous Makers, Wondrous Worlds; Raised embroidery from the 17th century, 13 May- 11 September 2022.

Learn how to create this beautiful motif based upon the Esther and Ahaseurus Raised Embroidery Panel stitched in approximately 1640. The RSN design is based on a section of the intricate panel showing a bird flying around a tree under sun rays and beautiful sparkling cloud. You will have a chance to view and learn about the history of this panel and many other wonderful objects during the day from the museum’s unique collection and exhibitions.

During the class an expert RSN Tutor will teach you hand embroidery techniques including, Padding, Goldwork, Surface Stitching and Textural Couching. Some experience of embroidery would be useful but all aspects of the design will be covered during the class and a full instruction booklet will be included in the kit to enable you to complete the design at home. This class is suitable for beginners and more experienced stitchers.

The class cost includes all materials and your kit comprises everything you require to complete the project. You may like to bring your own embroidery scissors and magnifiers if you need them, but you will be able to borrow ring frames and scissors on the day.

This event includes entrance to the exhibition and an embroidery kit worth £50. 

Lunch and refreshments – Hot drinks and lunch are available to purchase from the museum cafe. The museum is located a 10 minute walk from central Bath with plenty of local shops and cafes nearby to explore.
