Welcome to the Royal School of Needlework The International Centre
of Excellence for the
Art of Hand Embroidery
Exquisite Whitework embroideries - Last chance!
Last chance - Exquisite Whitework embroideries on display until 1 December in our Embroidery Studios
Delicate antique collars, sleeves and cuffs; christening robes and baby caps; fine underwear and Sunday-best table linen and handkerchiefs exemplify some of the most intricate pieces of Whitework embroideries to form part of this exhibition.
Although the exhibition features one embroidery technique there is a great variety in the pieces on show, for example, an exceptionally fine handkerchief from the Paris Exhibition of 1867 representing the Egyptian Pavilion; a set of miniature garments made in 1844 comprising skirt, boned bodice, bloomers, petticoat, nightdress, shirt and socks; a toddler gown featuring the Prince of Wales Feathers and Ayrshirework, a tea cosy in pulled thread work and bedding featuring a cottage scene.
Contemporary applications of Whitework are represented by examples from RSN Diploma students and graduates showing how these delicate techniques can be used to create an amazing variety of patterns, textures and designs all without any colour.
