The Embroiderers’ Guild Exhibition Takes Flight at the Smith

Our latest exhibition is now on display in Gallery 1: Flights of Fancy by The Stirling & Districts Embroiderers’ Guild.

Early in the year, the Guild was preparing for a showcase of works created around the themes of flight and dream.    However, this theme took on new meaning for members when lockdown restrictions were put in place in March.  Members found themselves having to make ‘leaps of the immagination’ through artworks that not only include embroidery, but textile arts,  hand-dying, and stumpwork.

The variety of works on display show the diversity of technique and interests of the guild members.  The local branch has over thirty members made up of professional textile artists, teachers, and amateurs.

If you would like to see Flights of Fancy, pop over to the Smith Thursday to Sunday 11-4.  The exhibition will be on view until 15 November.  We look forward to welcoming you!

    We were due to be coming to Stirling this week to see the Flights of Fancy Exhibition so are disappointed that we cannot now travel. Do you have any plans to put it online so people can see the work?
