We also host many (mostly Dutch spoken) masterclasses and workshops with Crafts Council Nederland, visit their website for more information.
Gillian Vogelsang - Eastwood is the driving force behind the Textile Research Center in Leiden. Since 2017 she published, in collaboration with many others, very extensive embroidery encyclopedias. For example, they published the Encyclopedia of Embroidery of the Arab World and in January published the second volume about the subjects Central Asia, the Iranian plateau and sub India. There is so much to tell about embroidery, the techniques they use, materials and customs that there are, that there will be at least three more lectures coming up. Gillian will take us into the wonderful world of embroidery Thursday afternoon on the 25th of March.
