This is a recording of a live online event on Wednesday 25 November 2021, and is available to view On Demand now until 9 January 2022.
Join the RSN’s Amy Hare to see some rare and wonderful Victorian pieces from our archives in this object-focused Talk followed by a Q&A session. You’ll find out about the commodification of needlework and the concept of self-improvement through craft in Victorian Britain. When we encounter an embroidered object, we can be charmed by its beauty, in awe of its craftsmanship or intrigued by its unfamiliarity, but we are also bearing witness to the act of making, the moment of deliberate and exact stitching.
