Embroidery Workshop

In partnership with Ornamental Embroidery, The Weiss Gallery is hosting a two-day course based on Elizabethan embroidered costume. The idea for this joint venture came about when Dr Lynn Hulse (textile historian) provided her expert opinion on an Elizabethan full-length portrait of Catherine Carey, Countess of Nottingham, painted by Robert Peake, c. 1597, sold by the gallery in 2012, and considered by many as the greatest costume piece of the period.
