Designed to showcase the beauty and elegance of Traditional Japanese Embroidery, not often seen in public, Captured by Silk Threads will expose Braemar Gallery visitors to the high caliber embroideries which are presented on luxurious silk fabrics and use soft silk threads and glorious goldwork.
Dianne’s studies have included time at the Kureni Kai School in Japan and she is one of only 600 people outside of Japan studying Traditional Japanese Embroidery.

Dianne will be in attendance each day at the exhibition, working on a traditional Japanese frame and talking to visitors about the processes that are involved in creating the embroidery.
