TTOD102 Talk on Demand – Victorian Embroidery in the 19th Century

£5.00

This is a recording of a live online event originally broadcast on Wednesday 27 November 2020 and is available to view On Demand now until 30 September 2021. 

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. In this talk 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.
