The IOM branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild’s launch of their “Landscapes and Gardens” exhibition at Milntown was very well attended by both current and past members as well as representatives from other crafting groups and of the trustees of Milntown Estate.
Unfortunately our Patron, Lady Gozney and her husband the Lieutenant Governor were unable to attend due to a double booking.
Eleanor Roome, our Chair, praised the members for all their hard work and enthusiasm in putting this exhibition together. There are almost 60 pieces on exhibit from the Guild plus 11 pieces from the Young Embroiderers. The exhibition reflects the changing seasons of Milntown with both vibrant colour and soft hues. There is an amazing range of technique and skills encompassed within the pieces which highlights just how talented our Isle of Man branch is. It is interesting also to see just how widely the branch has interpreted the theme.
Below is just a small sample of the wonderful and varied work on display.
The exhibition remains open until Monday 17th October and is open each day, 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m., except Tuesday when Milntown Estate is closed.
