Sir Ninian Comper: Ecclesiastical Embroidery Designer

Ninian Comper, also known as John Ninian Comper, embarked on his design career in 1880 at age 16 in Aberdeen School of Art. After joining Charles Kempe’s studio in 1882, he honed his skills. Comper’s apprenticeship with George Frederick Bodley in 1883 marked a significant phase in his development as a church architect. This dedicated training for four years under Bodley and Thomas Garner shaped Comper into a skilled practitioner beyond a mere craftsman.
