Elizabeth Barnett is one of The Windsor Workshop's modern day art heroes.  Without a doubt.   Elizabeth’s illustrations and paintings often depict her everyday surroundings - intimate domestic spaces filled with exotic and interesting plants, colour, treasured objects and furniture, seasonal still life compositions and landscapes.  Constantly returning to ideas surrounding the split between motherhood and creative life, living on the land and in harmony with the seasons, we find the simple pleasures in life are well documented in Elizabeth’s work.

We have been relentless in securing Elizabeth’s introduction to The Windsor Workshop!  And we are extremely excited to announce that Elizabeth is joining us on Saturday, October 27th to take us on an embroidery journey teaching us the basics of embroidery, creating a nature derived embroidery sampler.  We couldn’t be happier...
