Art of Embroidery Exhibition

21st May 2021

If you are looking for a way to display your embroidery talent, the Worshipful Company of Broderers in the UK is seeking submissions for an upcoming exhibition scheduled to run in early 2022.

The Worshipful Company of Broderers is one of the ancient Livery Companies of the City of London, originally set up to regulate the standard of embroidery in the city in the Middle Ages.

The theme for the upcoming exhibition is simply ‘The Art of Embroidery’ so the scope is as broad as you would like it to be. Every type of embroidery is welcome, including machine embroidery and hand embroidery, and both traditional and contemporary works are encouraged. 

The main stipulation is that your piece demonstrates embroidery as an art form.

Now, if you think that because you’re not in the UK, you can’t enter, we’re pleased to let you know that the exhibition is open to anyone around the world. To enter you can simply send a digital image/photo of your piece to the organisers and they will be making their selections from there.

If you’ve ever hoped that your designs might be exhibited at an event organised by one of the oldest embroidery organisations in the world, then now is the time to get the needles and sketchbooks out. Entries are now open, click HERE for details.
