FABRICreATIONS – ‘A World of Textiles in one City’
The National Exhibition of The Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners & Dyers in collaboration with Merseyside Embroiderers.
Exhibition 25 July to 22 August 2008
The Association’s 2008 National Exhibition is the second time the prestigious event has been held in Liverpool. Association Chair, Hilary Turner, said: “We are very much looking forward to bringing our exhibition back to Liverpool, particularly during the city’s year as European Capital of Culture. It has been extremely rewarding for us to have had the opportunity to introduce our crafts to the students, and we are very excited to see the results of their creativity and fresh approach in the work they are producing for the exhibition.
“Following the success of the student workshops, we are very keen to introduce textile crafts to the wider community. To this end, we are organising a residential weekend from 8th-10th August, which will offer a choice of courses to members of the public who wish to learn a new skill.”
