“Inspired By Landscapes”

An Exhibition of modern and traditional stitched textiles
from the Avalon Embroiderers Guild

The Wells Museum, 8 Cathedral Green, Wells, Somerset, BA5 2UE

October 16th – 21st 2017

“Inspired By Landscapes” is a new exhibition from the Avalon Embroiderers Guild. The exhibition will show the work of Somerset based embroiderers, with an eclectic line up of 2D and 3D works, showcasing traditional hand stitching, including crewel or Jacobean work, blackwork, and goldwork, alongside more contemporary work using mixed media, hand-dyed fabrics, and machine embroidery. As well as individual works, on display will be several group projects, including ‘Everlasting Landscapes’ and ‘Street Scenes’, made up of individual pieces joined together to create larger scenes; and two life-size embroidered figures of King Arthur (kindly on loan from Glastonbury Abbey)
and Queen Guinevere.

In addition to the work on display - some of which will be for sale - there will be a sales table of stitched gifts, ‘inspiration packs’, and cards. It will be an exciting and vibrant exhibition, full of colour, variety and texture, guaranteed to brighten up an autumn day.

The exhibition will be open 10am – 4pm, from Monday 16th –Saturday 21st October 2017, at The Wells Museum, 8 Cathedral Green, Wells, Somerset, BA5 2UE
