The Broderers' Guild

The Broderers’ Guild at Norwich Cathedral takes care of and repairs ecclesiastical textiles, as well as designing and making new frontals and vestments for use at the Cathedral and elsewhere.

Workshop Tours

Go behind the scenes by signing up for one of our Broderers’ Guild Workshop Tours, which run throughout the year.

Workshop tours are currently suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Commissioning work

The Broderers’ Guild is able to offer its services to parishes and private individuals in the Diocese of Norwich and beyond, providing restoration expertise, alterations or repairs to existing work, as well as designing and making new items such as chasubles, stoles and frontals.

It’s a completely bespoke service and we offer free 15 minute consultations at the workshop for any group or individual exploring the possibilities. Site visits can be made for an additional charge.


If you think you might have the skills we are looking for, we’d love to hear from you. To express an interest please complete our volunteering form.
