Wells Cathedral-Part one

This is a back view or Wells Cathedral taken from the Bishops Palace.

Marlborough Embroiderers Guild arranged a coach outing to go and view the Embroideries designedby Jane Lemon, and worked by the Sarum Embroiderers and the Royal School of Needlework.

The fantastic architecture of Wells Cathedral is always breathtaking and Jane caught the inspiration in this cope which we were shown. It was absolutely beautiful and all the silk was dyed to order.

Here is one of the altar frontals which is stunning and very 3 dimensional.

The photos really speak for themselves.

What lovely finds! I adore the women.. I keep thinking that they remind me of Wren (Clarice's heroine) somehow...Elegant and charming... :P
