Our Past Festivals
Spanning anywhere from 9 days to 2 weeks, our needlework Festivals have featured workshops with some of our favourite tutors, as well as a series of specially curated lectures. 2, 3 and 4-day workshops will be offered in three time zones to accommodate students from all over the world – with participants from New Zealand to Canada, from Hong Kong to France, the UK to the US, all coming together to celebrate their shared love of needlework.
May 2022 Festival
Costume & Accessories
Our May event featured designs based on a theme of Costume and Accessories. With 9 tutors, offering 17 workshops and a star studded line up of speakers, the event was a real celebration!
January 2022 Festival
At the start of 2022, our Festival designs based on a theme of coifs, where students had the opportunity to dive deep into this little known needlework artefact that has spanned the ages!
May 2021 Festival
Our inaugural online Festival back in May 2021 was a leap into the unknown for hosts and participants alike. The fun, enjoyment and learning that took place in those two weeks set the tone and energy for the events that have followed!
