The History of Bushey Embroidery

Until 15th October 2023

Bushey Embroideries is a textile history of Bushey from the Stone Age to the Present Day. The project was the inspiration of the late Bryen Wood, who suggested that the group of Embroiderers, who had previously worked on the Millennium Panel, create a Bayeux-style Tapestry. The Group of Embroiderers, all Friends of the Museum, began with samples from details set up by Bryen Wood and the late Grant Longman.  There are 20 embroideries and each embroiderer worked on her own panel, 630 mm x 500mm. The project was funded by the Friends of Bushey Museum.
