Textiles in Focus

Friday 19th February - Sunday 21st February 2016


A collection of mixed media and textiles, including those inspired from Coventry Cathedral


Ann, Angie, Lynda and Guest Artist Lee Creswell.


Well, what a good time we had at this show, we arrived on Thursday morning bright and early, everything was there ready for us, the space was terrific with large screens and plenty of tables, help was there when required and David was at our beck and call all the weekend.

We shared the large hall with two other groups, Running with Scissors and The Westhope Lace Group, three quite different groups so there was plenty for the visitors to see.

We had so many compliments on the quality and diversity of our exhibition, people wanted to engage us in conversation (and we were happy to do so) on what techniques we had used, this ranged from Lynda's mixed media pieces to Angie's collage and my embroidery, several people wanted to know how to rust paper or fabric, all of which made it a very interesting weekend.

We thoroughly enjoyed the weekend even assembling and breaking down the exhibition and would do it all again at the drop of a hat.

We will load some pictures soon.


Congratulations to Lorna and David for organising such a successful weekend and for all the help, tea, coffee and biscuits.
