- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Bateman’s will be celebrating the skill of embroidery this autumn, as part of the National Trust’s 125 Treasures programme and inspired by the Orange tree embroidery by May Morris. This embroidered hanging in soft coloured silks on linen is displayed in the Parlour at Bateman’s and depicts a simple orange tree, grown as a standard, with bushy foliage, golden oranges and roses climbing up its slender trunk.
Have a go at some embroidery stitches around the kitchen table, with the help of embroiderer Caroline Zoob. Caroline will be working on a sample piece of embroidery based on the May Morris Orange tree embroidery.
10, 12, 20, 21 October 11.30am-16.30pm
No booking needed - pop in to the Kitchen on a first come first served basis throughout the day.
You’ll also be able to pick up a kit with everything you need to create a small embroidery at home, for a suggested donation that will support the conservation of treasures at Bateman’s. We’re inviting visitors to return photos of these creations to Bateman’s to form part of the Christmas decorations in the house this year.
The Oast House Shop will feature Morris-inspired items and the Mulberry Tea-room is open for hot meals, light snacks, or a warming drink.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
