It takes a gifted artist to become a great teacher and those who dare to teach never cease to learn.

(Musella lasiocarpa by Annie Patterson, Hampton Court Florilegium)
Our first day in London was spent in Royal Hampton Court. We did get an excellent presentation about the Royal School of Needlework's Floral designs and embroidery techniques. This school is globally unique and only one on it's field. It's 2-3 year curriculum is heavily focusing in different embroidery techniques, conservation and Restoration of old pieces.
The Royal Hampton Court is also the home for Hampton Court Palace Florilegium Society. Our group had the honor to visit the headquarters, get a informative presentation and see about half of the present collection.
