23 January at 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Our artist-in-residence, Nicki Jarvis, is transforming a wing-back armchair into a celebration of Mrs Smith’s community. The names of almost 200 of her most frequently-mentioned friends are to be embroidered onto patchwork squares, before being made into a chair cover with upholsterer Hannah Weston Smith from Hannah & Nails in Folkingham.
Nicki will be holding two informal embroidery workshops at the Cottage. Drop in any time during the session and join us in doing some simple back stitch embroidery on the specially printed patchwork squares.
Alternatively, you are welcome to pick up an embroidery pack any time the museum is open. This contains four prepared squares, embroidery threads and a needle, plus guidelines on what to do.
