Embroiderer’s Guild & Capability Brown

Starting in February 2016, a series of more than 40 exhibitions by the Embroiderers’ Guild will be organised in various stately homes across the country. The exhibitions are part of  Capability Brown Festival 2016 and thousands of Guild’s members created an exceptional textile art pieces to celebrate Brown’s landscape and planting designs.

DAN member Julia Rollit, who is also a member of Worcester branch of Embroiderer’s Guild, is one of the exhibitors with her lovely landscape of the Croome Court grounds. To create her work, inspired with Brown’s ground landscapes, she combined techniques of painting, felting and stitching.
