FREE! Heritage Open Days – Quaker Samplers Collection Talk

Quaker Samplers Collection Talk
Quaker Samplers Talk – Come and find out all about the history of our samplers and even handle some for yourself!
This talk focuses on Quaker Samplers in our collection and coincides with our new exhibition. We take a look at what makes an embroidery sampler, the history of the tradition, its evolution at Ackworth School and some of the different possible styles, illustrated with our own examples.
The post-talk handling session will be a unique chance to get up close to the samplers mentioned in the exhibition, as well as others in our collection.
Friday 9 September: 10:30 and *15:00*
Saturday 10 September: 10:30 and *15:00*
The talk lasts for one hours and is FREE but tickets must be pre-booked. Book your tickets by clicking HERE
