The celebration of Mountmellick Embroidery continues with exhibitions of old & contemporary pieces, one to one and group workshops and visiting exhibitions.
Our next visiting exhibition is by the 04 Textile Group.
This exhibition is called Haberdashery.
It will run from Thursday 22nd July until Wednesday 09th August.
This exhibition combines contemporary stitched textile pieces with various historical artifacts related to domestic textile activity. "Womens Work" was often hidden, unacknowledged and undervalued. Using wall vased and 3D forms the group has brought their personal reflection to familiar items from women's lives in the past.
