Chicago Embroidery Conference and Workshop

Join us in June 2017 for four days dedicated to the fine art of embroidery

As part of Hand & Lock’s 250th year celebrations we are heading to the Chicago Cultural Center in 2017.

Our conference ‘Heritage, the Now and the Future of Embroidery’ will explore the enduring appeal of embroidery in fashion and textile arts while our ‘Tambour Beading’ workshop will introduce students to the specialist haute couture embroidery technique.


Expert speakers, practitioners and teachers from Australia and around the world will gather to debate, network and learn about the long history of embroidery and where the practice is heading.
