WILMA KIRKPATRICK: Stitching A Story
1 July - 29 August 2023
Textile artist Wilma Kirkpatrick’s award-winning work has been exhibited across UK, Europe and America. The retired University of Ulster teacher of embroidery of over 40 years, presents a selection of quilts and samplers, some of which are collaborations with textile artist Helen O’Hare.
The quilts each tell a story using a range of embroidery techniques, using domestic and industrial machines, with hand stitching to construct them. Each quilt takes up to a year to create. The stories portrayed through the work range from emigration to events in the artist’s life.
With special thanks to Garvagh Museum.
EXHIBITION LAUNCH: Please join us on Saturday 1 July at 1 pm. All welcome.
ARTIST TALK: Saturday 1 July, 12 noon. Free but booking essential.
