Sir Harold Hillier Gardens: Textile Art Exhibition 2018 9th – 23rd August

We are delighted to announce the opening of our third  exhibition at this venue.  Already it has been hailed and “the best exhibition at Hilliers EVER”, by several visitors!  The number of people we had on the first day was far too many to count, and we are delighted with the reception we received.

It has to be said that the star exhibit is Alison Hulme’s A Touch of Spring  which sold immediately, but continues to attract people into the exhibition.

For a full display of some of the exhibits go to : Gallery

We hope you will be able to visit the exhibition and see for yourselves the breath and expertise of the many pieces we have enjoyed creating.

In addition to our exhibition there are other attractions at the gardens – Art in the Garden,  Flower Fairies Trail (where each young child is also given a set of wings to wear –  hugely popular ) and of course the  gardens themselves.

Looking forward to our Exhibition starting on 9th August.

Don’t miss our third exhibition at Sir Harold Hillier Gardens from 9th – 23rd August.

As usual all nine artists will be exhibiting their works.

Also there will be the group project of Pinbury.  We each made a contribution of a hand made building which assembled, makes the beginnings of a village.  There are an interesting array of beautiful constructions for you all to see.

Another group project is an interesting experiment with us each embellishing a retro French napkin.  The results are really surprising.

In addition to our own textile art pieces we each took part in a fun experiment of making a textile piece using the Millennium Border as inspiration.
