Hand embroidery

At The Wilson, Cheltenham's Art Gallery and Museum

Produce a piece of embroidery inspired by Ernest Gimson.

Saturday 8 February 2020

In this creative hand embroidery workshop you will produce a piece of white work embroidery inspired by the designs of Ernest Gimson. The day will include: tuition to stitch a sampler style embroidery project that will introduce you to the textural stitches used in white work; study time in the Gimson exhibition with the original embroideries; and, opportunity to design your own piece of work inspired by Gimson. This creative day should leave you inspired by historical textiles and with a new perspective on a traditional craft.

Jo Teague is an experienced stitched textiles and crafts tutor, working for over 10 years with a variety of local organisations. She has a lifelong passion for hand embroidery and her infectious enthusiasm for the subject and its history will guide you through the sewing, stitching and designing of your own piece of beautiful hand embroidery inspired by the designs of Ernest Gimson.
