Blackwork Workshop

Tuesday 4th July, 10:00am – 3:00pm. Tickets £45 (Members £40)

Following the enormous success of the first Blackwork workshop in May this year we are running a second course. This second workshop will introduce complete novices to this addictive craft as well as allowing people who have had some experience to develop their skills.

Blackwork or Spanish Blackwork is a form of embroidery which uses a simple technique to form intricate and striking surface decoration on fabric.

Our very experienced tutor will guide you in this traditional skill. The workshop will be held in the timber framed Long Room at the museum which is accessed by a flight of stairs. All materials are supplied and a free lunch is included.

Find out more or book your place by phoning the Museum on 01527 831363 or emailing
