Duchess of Cornwall Special Edition
When we were given the information about the new Royal School of Needlework exhibition, we just had to write about it.
The exhibition entitled Faces & Figures in Stitch opened on the 24th of September and closes March 19 2020 – plenty of time of go and check it out!
Emma Doggart who is involved with the project told us:
Imagine the nerves of all the staff at the RSN, when The Duchess of Cornwall visited to see her very own self – in stitches, namely a technique called blackwork. This actually took place early last month, September the 5th.
For those who are less aware of the technique used to create this piece, Doggart gives an explanation:
Personally, I thought what was nice about the whole event, was the connection with The Duchess and the Royal School of Needlework setting. The image used as a basis to embroider was one of The Duchess, taken when visiting the RSN in 2017. So it was a memory as well as a portrait – one I am sure the whole Royal School of Needlework was very proud of.
Why not take a visit yourself to see The Duchess of Cornwall? Find out more information right here.
