Eyam Hall Textile Retreat

Sunday 20th - Wednesday 23rd April 2008

This residential course is dedicated to the learning, understanding and appreciation of embroidery and textiles.

Held in one of the most important historic houses in England, Eyam Hall has been a family home for hundreads of years, and still remains so. With the special permission of the owners, we will have the rarely granted freedom to explore these houses to study in depth, with the two tutors, their textile treasures.

The study and lectures are interspersed throughout each day with practical stitching and "hands on" practical textile conservation. You will explore the history and techniques of crewel work, including stitching your own project piece which will be directly drawn from the historic crewel work at Eyam Hall. There will be ample opportunity for individual tuition.

Accommodation at The Lee Wood Hotel in the historic Spa town of Buxton.
