The second talk in the series explores the technical aspects of Opus Anglicanum and is delivered by Dr Susan Kay Williams and Liz Elvin, both experts in their fields.

Our second speaker Elizabeth Elvin is a former Principal of the Royal School of Needlework who since retiring has continued to teach embroidery skills in Cairo, Nairobi and herein the UK. Her talk focuses on the techniques and materials used in the Opus Anglicanum embroideries and details the fascinating history of the manufacture and procurement of the fine gold bullions used. She will explain the techniques employed in the pieces and how the techniques best complemented the precious materials to create the beautiful finish that we can still appreciate hundreds of years later.

Tutors: Elizabeth Elvin
Elizabeth Elvin has enjoyed a long and varied career teaching hand embroidery. She joined the RSN in 1961 when it was based at Princes Gate, Kensington and where she went on to specialise in the teaching of gold and silk and ecclesiastical embroidery. She became Principal of the RSN in 1987, her first task overseeing the RSN's move from Princes Gate to Hampton Court Palace. She re-instated the Apprenticeship and introduced Day Classes and the Certificate Courses. Having taken early retirement from the RSN in 2007 she has now re-established her teaching career and has recently taught in Australia, San Francisco and other areas of the USA, as well as many parts of the UK.
Elizabeth is to be found teaching silk shading in the slums of Cairo to a wonderful group of young girls, and beginning next year to a group of underprivileged young girls in Kenya. She is also advising Fine Cell Work which teaches needlework to prison inmates in the UK. She is helping to curate an exhibition on the life of the late Beryl Dean with whom she worked on many ecclesiastical projects from 1970 to the early 1990s.
Elizabeth teaches RSN Day Classes at Hampton Court Palace.
