They are currently curating an embroidery exhibition and this piece, Pagoda 1 by Lara Carter was my favourite. It's huge, probably 8 feet high, wider at the top than the bottom and was displayed so that it hangs in luxuriant folds. I love the way the delicate colours merge into each other and create such substantial but mystical buildings.
There were also (unsurprisingly) quilts on display, some of them dating from the WWII era and embracing the tradition of re-using fabric from the family's wardrobes to create something both practical and beautiful.
