Exhibition Opening | Braided Threads

4 September 21 | 2PM

Braided Threads is the 2021 incarnation of the Ashburton Embroiderers’ Guild’s biannual exhibition which is open to all members. The exhibition brings together an impressive array of artworks
to showcase the artistic practice of embroidery, and celebrate the achievements of the members. Braided Threads encourages the creation and display of embroidery in all its forms, with works ranging from traditional to contemporary practices.

In conjunction with the opening of this exhibition, we are thrilled to be hosting Dr Jane Malthus – Dress Historian, Museum Curator and lecturer at the University of Otago. Dr Malthus will  present a talk inspired by textile techniques she recently learned about while undertaking research in India.
