First picture was taken at the end of the day, second picture in the morning, with the sun coming over the gatehouse. A sight the two Queens would mostly recognise today.. give a few alterations 😂

We are delighted to have the amazing Kate Barlow Embroidery back at Cambria Costume House teaching two more of her wonderful embroidery classes.
Kates first class is on March 4th and is a lovely Campanula Posy, which is inspired by two beautiful dress panels dating from the 1740s. Using silk shading and couching you’ll recreate this pretty design on ribbed ivory fabric using stranded silk threads, gilt thread and chenille.
The second class is an Embellished Pearl Bow. This beautiful embellished bow motif is inspired by an embroidered court gown dating from 1900. It is worked in silk thread, glass pearls, seed beads and diamanté on silk duchess satin.
The cost of each class is £75 and this includes one of Kates lovely kits for you to keep. All other equipment and materials are included in the cost but you may wish to bring your own embroidery scissors.

A snow day at a palace > a regular snow day ❄
Explore one of the most beautiful palaces this winter with . It was Cardinal Wolsey, Henry VIII’s Lord Chancellor, who began Hampton Court Palace’s transformation from an ordinary country house to a magnificent palace in 1514, on the north bank of the River Thames. The location of the Palace was significant in allowing fresh water to flow throughout the building - a rarity at the time. Wolsey’s ambitions to create a grand building where he could host the King, the royal court, and monarchs from across Europe was a resounding success, as Henry VIII loved the Palace so much, he eventually took Hampton Court for himself.
The King used the Palace as a symbol of his status, demonstrating his power through lavish banquets, decadent court life, and extravagant works of art. By the 1530s, the Palace was also a hotel, a theatre, and a sprawling leisure complex. And the 17th century saw the Palace as a venue of firsts. Hamlet and Macbeth were first performed at Hampton Court Palace by Shakespeare’s ‘King’s Men’ for the new Stuart king, James I.

And if you’re interested in learning more about the Tudors, incredibly there’s so many places still standing today, from King Henry VIII’s time - more than 500 years ago - that can be visited.

Preventative conservation in action 😎
This week, we’ve given the Great Watching Chamber at Hampton Court Palace a high level clean!
Our conservators have been checking the tapestries for signs of wear or damage and any pest activity - these pests are one of the ‘Agents of Decay’ and tend to be bugs like moths or carpet beetles which just can’t get enough of the wool.
Here, Conservator Jen is working on what we call the Anglesey tapestry (its official name is 'Virtues Challenge the Vices as Christ begins His Ministry').
The process involves:
✅ A visual inspection for pest activity or damage
✅ Placing netting over the tapestry
✅ Carefully vacuuming to get rid of any dust
It can take up to a week to check just one room so we’re using the quieter times in January to get this work done.
