Come and see an amazing selection of European textiles from the Needlework Development Scheme Collection in a special drop-in event as part of European Academic Heritage Day.  

Founded in 1934 and run by the four Scottish Art Colleges, the NDS aimed to collect examples of contemporary and historic embroidery from throughout the world for use as a national teaching resource. 

These fabulous fabrics will be on display specially for this event, chosen for their beautiful designs that embrace both traditional and modernist styles from around Europe including works by Emmy Zweybr├╝ck-Prochaska of Austria, Hede Kullenberg of Germany and the Society for Applied Arts in Hungary.  Come along at any time during the afternoon to meet embroidery experts who will answer any questions whilst you lose yourself in the vibrant stitches of Europe. 

Enter the Art College by the new entrance in the Matthew Building and ask for directions at Reception.
