Hand & Lock are a bespoke embroidery studio with 250 years of experience in providing embroidery for the Royal Family, military, and iconic fashion houses.
Hand & Lock hosts the world's premier embroidery competition at Oxo Tower Wharf's Bargehouse from 3-7 November 2021. The annual Hand & Lock Prize for Embroidery will celebrate fashion and textile arts over three floors of new embroidery by the best emerging designers. Exhibits will be on display for five days only.
The exhibition will also highlight the work of London’s oldest embroidery atelier and show how embroidery is still practised in the 21st century, as well as showcasing leading textile artists & designers from around the world.
The exhibition is accompanied by a curated schedule of talks, events and workshops based around the preservation of contemporary embroidered arts and craftsmanship. Over the course of the exhibition, attendees will have the opportunity to book onto taster sessions, day long workshops and hear how embroidery practitioners are adapting to an increasingly technological and mechanised world.
