Our second World Textile Day of the season is just around the corner. Along with fellow world textile experts, we'll be setting up a FREE one-day exhibition of stitched, embroidered and woven textiles and artefacts from around the world.
Our theme this year is Rites of Passage: Birth, marriage and death through textiles, which will be the focus of our morning and afternoon talks - only £2 per session. At 11 am our main talk by Bob Irwin is called Bury Me Well: African funeral textiles and rituals. At 2 pm we'll have two short talks by John Gillow and Diane Gaffney, plus as a textile show & tell.
In addition to an interesting and stimulating exhibition, you'll meet our team of fair trade world textile experts. Browse, chat, shop and eat great cakes courtesy of our hosts Meon Valley Quilters. Free parking and disabled access. Don't miss this great day out!
