Derby Cathedral Embroidery Workshop

Visit the Beddoes Room on many Thursdays in the year, and you will find a dedicated band of embroiders working on new vestments or church fabrics, or repairing old ones. Work is undertaken both for the Cathedral itself and for churches near and far. Care, skill and devotion are the watchwords of the group. The late Canon Leonard Childs was a noted leader of the group, and his designs grace both Derby Cathedral and churches across the UK and abroad.

For more details about the group, or to ask about new work or repair work, please contact The Embroidery Workshop Co-ordinator C/o Cathedral Offices 18/19 Iron Gate DERBY DE1 3GP Email: office@derbycathedral.org Tel: 01332 341201 x 27
