About the Event
During much of the 19th century embroidery was reduced to a form of canvas work known as Berlin Wool Work. Its hallmarks were big blousy flowers often on dark backgrounds. However, that changed with the starting of the Royal School of Needlework and their engagement with the leaders of the Arts and Crafts movement to create Art Embroidery. Working with Morris, Burne-Jones, Crane, Image and others the RSN created large scale embroideries to hang in art galleries and homes and even took the concept to the USA in 1876.
