Amongst the beautiful textiles featured in this exhibition are two amazing fabric pieces. The first is a fabric map of Northumberland National Park, created by Claire Satow and Clare Armstrong. First exhibited in the Queen’s hall, Hexham, this intricate piece of work celebrates the plethora of flora, fauna, geographical features and cultural heritage that makes the Park so special and loved. It took two years to complete and over a hundred people contributed to it.
The second fascinating piece has been produced by Hexham Embroiderers’ Guild and depicts a dry stone wall and the many species of flora and fauna living on it. Other intricate textiles work depicting the cycle of a beehive by members of the Guild will also be on display.
