Join stitch artist Bella May Leonard for this fun activity exploring traditional sewing stitches with innovative materials.
This is also a final opportunity to see on display in the textile galleries the work Bella created in response to our textile collection, as artist in residence earlier this year.
This is a drop-in activity in the Library at Gawthorpe Hall, suitable for adults and accompanied children aged 4+.
The activity is free, but please note that standard Gawthorpe Hall entry charges apply: £4 adults, concessions £3, accompanied children free. Free entry for National Trust members, Art Fund National Art Pass holders and Friends of Gawthorpe.
Booking a ticket for this event will help us to know numbers for the day, thank you. As this is a drop-in activity, you may need to wait for a space, but we will make sure everyone can participate.

When & Where
Gawthorpe Textiles Collection
Gawthorpe Textiles Collection is an independent charity based at Gawthorpe Hall, Padiham, Lancashire. Originally called the Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth Collections, the charity was created after the death of our founder, Miss Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth (1886- 1967) to care for the collection of textiles she had amassed and to make it accessible through learning programmes and curated collection displays in the Hall itself.
We work in partnership with Lancashire County Council and the National Trust, who together manage the Hall and its grounds.
