Art of the Stitch: Historic Embroidery Collections


This event offers the opportunity to view a selection of objects from Birmingham Museums Trust's fantastic collections which are currently held in storage, and are not normally accessible to the public. During the event you will be able to see a range of historic textiles, including garments and accessories dating from the 16th century onwards.

You are welcome to sketch and photograph these amazing examples of embroidery up close. Come and be inspired by their beautiful designs and skilful needlework, and take home a copy of a historic pattern from our collection to try stitching for yourself.
