Embroidery Workshop students with Bridget on the right

Our workshops are held at the Quaker Tapestry Museum in Kendal and are tutored by Bridget Guest and Carole Butcher who have a wealth of experience both in embroidery and in the Quaker Tapestry. Bridget has been involved with the Quaker Tapestry project since 1994 and will share with you the secrets of the stitches!

The Half-day 'Taster' or refresher sessions 

In just one morning you can learn the six stitches and create a little picture to take home with you. Ideal for both the absolute beginner and those who wish to improve or refresh their skills.
