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.

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.

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.
