Year 12 Art Textiles Visit To Museum In The Park

On Thursday 8 November the Year 12 Art Textiles students made the short walk up to Stratford Park’s Museum in the Park to view two exhibitions, as well as taking in the textile work in the main displays. The first of the exhibitions was a collection of fabric hearts by the Embroiderers' Guild to commemorate 100 years since the ending of the First World War, and the next was an exhibition from the Cheltenham Illustration Awards Entitled ‘Tangled Tales’ about visual story telling with work, 

The variety of work was interesting, spanning modern illustrative textile descriptions, historic garments, and hand crafted poppies. It was fascinating to see more of Stroud’s rich textile heritage along side the wealth of local talent, proving you don’t always have to make long journeys to gather evidence and be inspired.
