Artist talk: Tanya Bentham

5 – 6.30pm

Redcar Palace

A talk by Tanya Bentham, currently exhibiting in 'The Grand Old Open' at Redcar Palace.

Tanya Bentham has specialised in medieval embroidery for most of her adult life. She works with medieval stitches and medieval materials, but sometimes adds a modern twist. Bentham has published two books with Crowood Press, Opus Anglicanum (2021) and Bayeux Stitch (2022), both of which are available to view during The Grand Old Open exhibition.

In this talk, Tanya discusses her work and medieval embroidery influences.
