Gutter Lane Em​broidery

Gutter Lane Embroidery is dedicated to the rediscovery and revival of the skilled hand embroidery techniques used to embellish textiles of the 16th century. References to embroidered textiles are abundant in documents of the time but, unfortunately, few of them survive intact. Detailed examination of these extant items, in conjunction with research into available documentation and visual evidence in portraiture, help us to understand the development of a highly valued skill and of its impact on the 16th century.


Embroiderers’ Hall was originally built on Gutter Lane in 1515. It was rebuilt after the Great Fire of London and remained until it was destroyed during the Blitz.
