Description

Crest_and_RSN_Logo_smaller.jpg

We have been allowed behind the scenes and into the studios of the Royal School of Needlework where a dedicated team  work on commissions as varied as repairing antique heirlooms and christening gowns, to creating new heirlooms; we are privileged to see work being carried out on the new regimental alterpiece for the newly formed Royal  Anglian Regiment (which had its Service of Dedication on 1st November at the regiment’s chapel in Warley, Essex), as well as see examples of the work carried out in conjunction with English Heritage to help create their new ‘immersive experience’ in the Great Tower at Dover Castle.   The idea has been to show visitors what the castle would have looked like when Henry II, in 1184, was their on a state visit, and the pieces are certainly both sumptuous and massive.

The tour gives an idea of the varied work carried out to an incredibly high standard in the Studios.

For more information about how the Royal School of Needlework may be able to look after your treasured family textiles and/or create works of embroidered art for your next generation contact amanda.berry@royal-needlework.org.uk

And remember that they were involved in the creation of the wonderful wedding gown for the Duchess of Cambridge.
