Portrait of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown

2016 marks the 300th Anniversary of the birth of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown who is credited with changing the national landscape and creating a style of garden and landscape design which has shaped people’s perception of the English Countryside.

The Embroiderers’ Guild is one of the Festival partners contributing to the celebrations with a series of unique textile events at venues across the country throughout 2016.

One of the embroiderers from the City of York branch, Roberta Harte, has created a stitched portrait of Capability Brown.
