Turn back the clock and delve into the history of needlework tools with Joy Evitt, from the Norwich Costume and Textile Association (C&TA).
Joy’s talks bring the past alive with her knowledge of needlework during the Victorian period and her collection of antique tools and equipment.
This is a free talk. Please make your way to The Forum’s Auditorium at 12.45pm. There will also be Q&As.
Pamela Clabburn, founder of the C&TA said, “Any tool which is well made and completely functional has a beauty of its own, whether it be a spade, screwdriver or saucepan but few trades, combine tools of the utility and beauty as effortlessly as that of needlework.”
The C&TA are also offering free textile based activities during the Festival.
