Between the 12th and 15th centuries England had a well-deserved reputation for quality embroidery, which was often referred to as 'Opus Anglicanum' (English work).

This new exhibition will explore how it was made by craftspeople in the City of London and then sold to kings, queens, popes and cardinals from all over Europe.

The exhibition will include some rare surviving samples, alongside medieval paintings, manuscripts, metalwork and stained glass.
