Having managed to miss the rest of this short series, I thoroughly enjoyed ‘Fabric of Britain – The Wonder of Embroidery’ yesterday on BBC Four. Although once or twice my hackles were raised, this was possibly the best opportunity I will have to get so close to the stitches of Opus Anglicanum. Truly breathtaking. Some interesting social historical contextualising too. Left me with loads questions which will just have to be left on the back burner for some future research! The Victoria and Albert Museum also seem to be displaying these textiles in a very different way to how I remember them which sounds like a good excuse for another visit.
