The Needles Art Exhibition
12th November 2021
As restrictions start to lift around the world, one of the wonderful things we are seeing is the return of exhibitions and shows. For endless months now, artists have been forced to work in isolation, but at last their creations can be put on display for people to finally get out and enjoy.
One such exhibition is The Needles Art, which we first featured in Inspirations issue #108, and after being postponed due to COVID-19, is now opening on 20th November at the Bodleian Library in Oxford, UK.
The exhibition features a selection of hand embroidered items inspired by an early Tudor pattern book, MS Ashmole 1504. There is a huge range of different projects on display, all of which have used one or two discrete designs from the book as inspiration.
The exhibition runs until the 16th January 2022. Even if you aren’t lucky enough to be able to visit Oxford to see the works, you can read more about it HERE or follow Ornamental Embroidery on Instagram HERE.
