Stitching Time

Stitching Time

Friday 17th October

Silverdale Library

Experienced stitchers and

first time scribblers all welcomed!

When Dieualcres Abbey was dissolved, among its many treasures were richly embroidered copes: cloaks worn by Abbots and Bishops. Rumour (possibly scurrilous) has it that some of these beautiful pieces were carried away to Hardwick and Hatton Halls and are incorporated into later materials there.

In our ongoing celebration of the richness that once rested in Leek, join our artists to make sections for a spectacular new robe mixing medieval images with modern heroes and everyday saints in appliqué, drawing, felt and beads. Original copes were adorned with Biblical and saintly images and motifs, so our once, now and next cope will feature medieval designs and modern heroes and future hopes in similar styles

Time: 1 – 3pm

Where: Silverdale Library, Newcastle: High St, Silverdale, Newcastle ST5 6LY, 01782 297444
