Williamsburg, Virginia USA October 2017

We are delighted to be offering a series of Day Classes at Williamsburg School of Needlework, 5121 Center Street, Suite 100, Williamsburg, Virginia 23188, USA from Thursday 12 to Monday 23 October 2017.

We have a few last remaining spaces so please book now to avoid disappointment. 

We have a choice of one day Introduction Classes, perfect if you are a beginner.    Alternatively, if you would prefer a more in-depth two day class, book onto Historic Stitch, inspired by a 16th century embroidered panel or the Silk Embroidery class inspired by Beatrix Potter's Tailor of Gloucester.

From Crewelwork and Ribbonwork to Beading, our RSN Tutor Auburn Claire Lucas has created a series of stunning designs. Auburn has been selected as a new tutor working with Phillipa Turnbull and two of Auburn’s pieces feature in our new Embellishment in Fashion exhibition.
