Accessorise like an Elizabethan!

Design your own 16th century style ruff or cuff, but give it a contemporary twist.

Enjoy creating and stitching in company, while appreciating the hand crafting skills of the past.

Join the artists from Art at Work, who are exploring the history of Norwich's textile industry, in a three year project with Norfolk's Museum Service.
