A tour of Hand & Lock’s London Atelier is the best way to see one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious hand embroidery work rooms still in activity today. A must for any textile, fashion or embroidery enthusiast, we have a showcase of fantastic samples, ranging from supermodel Kate Moss’s vintage dress for Topshop to time honoured pieces from the 1700s.
Our tours run approximately 50 minutes, and will pass through our studio where specialist practitioners are working on live projects using techniques such as Tambour beading, Trapunto, Cornely and many more. You will be shown samples and pieces we have provided the fashion and theatre industry; this illustrates examples of Diplomatic and Military court dress for all over the world.
Embroidery courses are also available.
