Following a career in teaching, Matthew Cayton discovered his love of needlework. He is passionate about all forms of English hand embroidery, from Jacobean crewel work to silk shading, to appliqué.

Becoming a QEST Broderers’ Company Scholar will enable Matthew to undertake the Future Tutor Course at the Royal School of Needlework which, as well as equipping Matthew with the skills and knowledge to conserve and restore important historic examples of hand-embroidery, will prepare him to teach the techniques of this craft to future generations.
