Fashion Museum Bath, Friday 21 September, 10am – 4pm. £80 (includes a ticket to the Fashion Museum) Royal School of Needlework Tutor Deborah Wilding will teach this bespoke embroidery class, which will take place during Bath’s famous Jane Austen Festival. The class is suitable for all levels and is inspired by dress worn at the time of Jane Austen. During the class you will create a handkerchief embroidered in the corner with a motif appropriate to the time of Jane Austen, using whitework techniques including satin stitch, stem stitch and eyelets as well as finishing techniques. You will also have an opportunity to view the dress at the Fashion Museum as part of the A History of Fashion in 100 Objects exhibition. The class kit, available to buy on the day for £30 (cash only), will include everything you need to complete the project.
