Some local[ish] events to consider visiting

Jean has emailed to let us know about the goldwork exhibition at Berkeley Castle  – see the Upcoming Events page.

And I have just been to Bath Abbey to see Sue Symon’s Diptychs, “an awe-inspiring work of art and craft. The life of Christ is depicted in thirty-five pairs of sumptuously decorated panels; a combination of needlework, hand-drawn lettering, illumination and calligraphy. The Diptychs are on display every year from February half-term until the Autumn half-term.” They are well worth a visit if you are in Bath.

I was especially interested in the embroideries showing water, after our attempts at the recent workshop. Here is one of them.
