Hawthorne & Heaney for the Financial Times

On the 30th Sept, an article from the Financial Times entitled ‘Why English Embroidery is story telling with needle and thread.’ Off the back of the current ‘Opus Anglicanum’ exhibition currently on at the V&A Museum, the article sites many references from historical embroidery examples as well as contemporary textile artists such as Sarah K Benning, Louise Gardiner and Zara Day. The article closes on a quote from our very own Claire Barrett who was approached to contribute to the article. We hope to change the public’s perception of embroidery, one article at the time, as can be read below. See the financial times website for the article in its entirety.
