Discover Style and Society: Dressing the Georgians Exhibition. Explore hidden stories, grand paintings and incredible costumes in The Royal Collection

Arts 4 Dementia and The Royal Collection are delighted to offer a 6-week exhibition tour and textiles workshop at The Queen’s Gallery this summer.

Join us and marvel at the brand-new Style & Society: Georgian Fashion Exhibition! During the sessions Catherine, one of the Gallery’s brilliant guides will be taking us through the collection, focusing on a different theme each week from undergarments and accessories to materials and fabrics.

At the end of the tour, you will take part in a practical workshop in the gallery with the brilliant textile Artist, Alice Burnhope. Taking inspiration from the paintings and objects you have been introduced to, you will create your own Georgian-inspired artworks. Learn how to stitch, applique and collage with a variety of materials in the gallery space.
