Dove Cottage & Garden

Contact us to book

To celebrate the opening of a new exhibition of needlework from our collection, including Dorothy Wordsworth’s post-bag and a tiny harp-shaped needlecase by Edith Southey, we will hear all about the inspiration for the display from its curator Phillipa Turnbull.  Phillipa, a world-renowned textile expert and founder of the Crewel Work Company, will talk about the research and design of the exhibition and of the brand new needlework pieces created in response to the historical treasures.  There will be a private view of the exhibition and drinks in the museum to follow the talk.

Cost: £5
