BOOKING FOR THIS EVENT HAS NOW CLOSED.

This Online Talk is part of our 'Treasures of the RSN Collection' series. For details on further RSN events, please visit our Online Talks page. 

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. Easily accessed via Zoom, 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.
