Heritage Needlecraft Workshop - Brontë Needle Roll & Regency Embroidery

Heritage Needlecraft Workshop - Brontë Needle Roll & Regency Embroidery

'Travel through time and learn a new skill along the way'

Our hands-on Heritage Workshops teach transferable skills and the histories behind them in a full day (6 hrs) programme.

Topics range from Viking motif appliqué to '70s macramé, with Arts & Crafts tapestry, Regency embroidery, Liberty Florals, Durham quilting and more in-between.

The histories have a uniquely British flavour, with many rooted in Yorkshire and the North East. The skills are timeless: knitting, tapestry-work, quilting, cross stitch, appliqué, macramé, embroidery and beading.

We also have shorter Saturday Skills Classes to learn new skills or develop existing ones.


Sew a needle roll just like Charlotte Brontë's and study Regency embroidery patterns and designs. Learn a range of hand-stitches and personalise your roll with lace, ribbon and beads in the tradition of 19th century ladies.

Taught by textile artist Helen Barnes.
