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.

Supporting the National Portrait Gallery: 'Elizabeth I & Her People'

The Weiss Gallery is proud to be supporting the National Portrait Gallery's forthcoming exhibition on 'Elizabeth I & Her People', which will explore for the first time the achievements of the Elizabethan period through portraits of the queen, the nobility and the rising middle classes.

Anne Clifford's tenacious battle to inherit her family’s vast estates in the 17th century, has made her a modern feminist icon. She commissioned the portrait from Larkin, one of the most fashionable artists of the Jacobean era, and mentioned it in her diary.
