From January - April 2014 - Helen McCook from the Royal School of Needlework, Hampton Court Palace will be taking inspiration from the Portrait Gallery and working with different audiences.

In this session - part 2 of 2, Helen will continue to consult with visually impaired visitors with the aim of producing a range of tactile embroidery samples relating to key portraits from the Portrait Gallery collection. At the end of her residency she hopes to have produced a handling resource that can be used by both visually impaired and sighted groups.
