Branch Events

Worcester Branch - "Changing Perspectives" - a Textile Art Installation at Croome National Trust (EG Branch Event):
05-Jul-2019 to 31-Dec-2019

About the Event: The idea of ‘change’ to the grounds was the starting point for the members of Worcester Embroiderers’ Guild’s installation. We looked at the social and political events that have left their mark on Croome Park. Resulting ideas ranged from the disappearing village, the creation of the lake and gardens, life during WW2, St. Joseph’s School for Boys, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness and, most recently, the arrival of the National Trust and its plans for taking the estate forward.

Working in their own style and mostly in collaborative groups, the members have tried to depict aspects of these important moments through textile art work. For some, their medium has been felt, others have applied fabrics which, in some cases, have been naturally dyed, creating pattern and foliage found in the landscape. In all cases, the inspiration was to depict a Changing Perspective on a room setting – creating all the fixtures and fittings from textiles.

Vintage fabrics have been integrated and recycled and, through using materials that are not usually associated with embroidery, the visitors should see a tactile response in 3D with this installation. The designs have a common link of hand and machine stitch, enhancing the work with threads used in a variety of ways to make statements ranging from the bold to the finely-detailed.

A different view on the theme of ‘change’ has arisen with the Branch being fortunate to work with Antony Bridge who is Croome’s Artist in Residence.
