As you may know the Embroiderers' Guild is a Festival Partner for the 300 Year Anniversary celebration of life and times of Capability Brown. We have secured 42 host venues throughout England and 3 pavilions at national shows in 2016 for exhibitions of members' pieces - your interpretations of gardens and landscapes. This will be a unique contribution to the festival organised by English Heritage, The National Trust and the Landscape Institute and a huge opportunity to showcase members' work and the artistry of stitch.
You may wish to tune to the More4 Channel on Thursday 17th September at 9pm for the first in a series of three programmes hosted by Alan Titchmarsh on the life and works of Capability Brown. Often called the 'father of landscape architecture' Capability Brown moved hills and sometimes entire villages, to create serpentine waterways and rolling vistas that have come to epitomise the English countryside ideal.
We felt that you may find the programme inspirational, informative and enjoyable.
