Selwyn Image Tote Bag Embroidery Kit

This kit is based upon a design of birds by Selwyn Image.  Image (1849–1930) was a leading British artist, designer, writer and poet with close links to the Arts and Crafts Movement. After an early career in the church he studied with the architect and designer A. H. Mackmurdo and went on to produce many designs for stainedglass and furniture as well as embroidery. From 1910 to 1916 he was the Slade Professor of Fine Art at Oxford. The design featured in this kit is one of a number that Image created for the RSN Embroidery Studio.
