29th July 2022 – 30th July 2022


Gardener two-day Embroidery Workshop, Friday 29th and Saturday 30th July, 10am-4pm, £150

This design was inspired by the gardener on one of the Quaker Tapestry panels which shows a typical Cadbury garden village house in Bournville.
Our kit designer, Bridget has changed the tree to a Rowan because they grow wild in Cumbria where the Quaker Tapestry lives.
You can learn how to add your favourite vegetables or flowers to the garden.

Immerse yourself in this exclusive two day workshop. Learn new skills and become absorbed and fascinated by this ancient art of narrative embroidery, with a modern twist.

Our workshops provide you with the six basic crewelwork stitches used within the Quaker Tapestry: Stem, Split, Chain, Quaker, Bayeux Point and Peking Knot.

In a relaxed and friendly environment our tutors will guide you through the stitches. Helping you work towards an embroidered picture to finish at home. You don’t need to have any experience in embroidery before you attend the workshop. For those of you who have done some stitching before, this is an opportunity to learn something new and refresh your skills.

Included in your workshop:

Stitch Kit – A full embroidery kit consisting of all the materials needed to create and finish a stitched picture. The kit includes: stitching guidelines, finishing tips, Woollen fabric and Calico cloth, crewel needles and Appletons crewel embroidery threads. We have done the preparation for you so we’ll be starting stitching straight away!

Equipment – There will be equipment available for you to use during the workshop.

Refreshments – Hot drinks and biscuits are ‘on-tap’ throughout the session and lunch is available to buy from our on-site Cafe.
