Clare Hunter shares stories of people using embroidery as an emotional expression to ease mental distress or connect to others when they find themselves excluded from everyday life because of mental or physical frailty.

At this interactive talk, Clare will explore why so many people find the creativity and rhythm of needlework not just therapeutic, but a way to bolster an elusive sense of self.

Join us to see wonderful and unique embroideries and hear fascinating stories, many documented in Clare’s first book Threads of Life and her second, Embroidering her Truth: Mary, Queen of Scots and the Language of Power.
