Back by popular demand, join us for this unique opportunity to get hands on with history and learn how to embroider a handkerchief using rare eighteenth-century patterns from the long-running monthly Lady’s Magazine (1770-1832). Led by Royal School of Needlework graduate Charlotte Bailey, you will learn historical needlework skills.
Charlotte Bailey is a freelance hand-embroidery artist (convinced she was born in the wrong time period!) with a passion for historical technique combined with contemporary application. She graduated from the Royal School of Needlework where she also had the privilege to work on the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress. During her time working at prestigious London-based ateliers Hand and Lock she also worked on fashion commissions from Louis Vuitton and Mary Katrantzou.
