WHAT?

Nottingham Cathedral has collaborated with Mary Broddle Embroidery to bring you this engaging and hands-on workshop. You will learn the basics of embroidery while exploring Pugin’s fascinating motifs and patterns.

WHEN?

Date: 28th May 2024

Time: 10:00am – 12:00pm

Venue: Cathedral Hall, Nottingham Cathedral, Derby Rd, Nottingham; enter via the main Cathedral entrance and walk through to the main community hall in the garden at the rear of the church.

WHY?

At the heart of the Nottingham Cathedral project is the restoration of the three chapels at the east end of the building to Pugin’s original vision and design. Early investigations of the paintwork by conservators have showed that Pugin’s original decorative scheme, sadly covered over with later paint, can be uncovered and brought back to its former glory.
As part of this important and innovative restoration, the Cathedral and its partners are taking the opportunity to encourage and develop conservation skills in the heritage sector and to encourage people from diverse backgrounds to get involved in learning new skills and engaging with the Cathedral.

This class not only fosters artistic expression but also enhances fine motor skills, patience, and attention to detail in a fun and supportive environment. Each participant will leave with a sense of accomplishment and a beautifully crafted masterpiece to cherish.

WHO?

This workshop is designed for children aged 7 and up. No prior embroidery experience is necessary – just bring your enthusiasm and eagerness to learn! Children must be accompanied by an adult. Adults are welcome to join in the workshop too; if you want to please book an additional place for yourself.

Limited places available, so don’t miss out!
