The latest exhibition in the Lamb Gallery showcases the Needlework Development Scheme collection of textiles.

Between 1934 and 1961 Scotland's art colleges collaborated to send researchers around the world collecting examples of historic and contemporary embroidery to use as a national teaching resource. This exhibition shows highlights from Dundee's part of this extraordinary collection - from African and Asian clothing to Native American designs.
