The project for this exciting course will be a 'Garden Embellished Companion'. A practical companion with a theme of beautiful hares in a cottage garden setting, drawing inspiration from embroidery stitches of the 1950s, to give a vintage look as well as contemporary ideas. A complete set of embroidered accessories will complement the companion, enabling you to hold all your sewing articles and tools, not only lovely as a keepsake but also a delight to use. If you prefer, there will also be an opportunity to work on a small piece of Stumpwork and delve into its background and history. A beautiful raised work technique which was very popular in the 1600s, and revived in the Victorian times.
This course is part of Week Two of the Dillington Summer School. Residents arrive for Tea on Sunday 12 August and depart after breakfast on Saturday 18 August.

In its commitment to the arts and to broader and even peripheral aspects of culture, Dillington House is a beacon of enlightenment in a world of increasing sameness, mediocrity and uncritical acceptance. And there is much to be said for the home cooking too. I unhesitatingly commend it to all who are still intellectually alert.
