wightwick manor exhibition



A Celebration of Art and Crafts  April 11th until April 28 th 2017

A Textile exhibition by the Wolverhampton Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild.

We have had the pleasure of creating pieces of work  to exhibit in the beautiful surroundings of Wightwick Manor, a National Trust property that provides endless inspiration.  What you will see as you travel through the house is a varied collection of pieces created using a wide range of textile techniques,

The pieces have blended into the house beautifully. Thanks to Louise Bloomer for organising this with Wightwick Manor. I have taken photos of all the pieces in situ. As I walked around the house taking photos people were very complimentary and some were amazed when they discovered that the pieces were not original to the house. High praise indeed.

we were able to hang this beautifully embroidered central curtain


























embroidered table napkins


















Little shoes




The inspiration for this piece can be seen through the window






I think you will agree a beautiful exhibition. Thanks to everyone who contributed pieces they were all exquisite. I hope I have done them justice as I wasn't allowed to use a flash.
