Discover Georgian Fashion at Buckingham Palace, June-July 2023

Posted: 2nd August 2023

The programme was led by a curator and a textile artist. In each session the curator took participants to a gallery or specific art work that forms part of the Queen’s Gallery Georgian Fashion exhibition, exploring the way Georgians presented themselves. Then the artist supported people to create a textile art work, from self-portraits to rosettes, enabling participants to learn different techniques. At the end, each participant took home a beautiful booklet containing all of their creations.

“I was nervous to attend the first session, but the welcome was so warm and sincere that I really looked forward to each Tuesday. I enjoyed the way that details in the portraits were studied, with the historic background researched. The activities were perfectly prepared and clearly explained. By the end of it, we felt that we had made new friends.”  Participant
