'How green was my Flintshire' by Ann Rogers which uses hand and machine stitched silk paper on silk organza and silk patchwork
Stitching with Colour, an exhibition of works of embroidery by members of the Merseyside branch of the Embroiderers Guild, has opened at the Victoria Gallery & Museum.
Embroidery – the use of stitches in an artistic and decorative way – is a traditional art form that can be traced back as far as 5 BC. Today, embroiderers experiment with natural materials and new ways of working as well as using traditional embroidery techniques.
The items on display in the Stitching with Colour exhibition showcase some of these new techniques and use paint, dyes, handmade felt, screen printing, machine stitching, hand embroidery and layering of fabrics.
Matthew Clough, Director of the Victoria Gallery & Museum, said: “This exhibition is a fantastic opportunity for visitors to come and see how artistic, creative and inventive modern day embroidery is.”
Stitching with Colour is on display in the Victoria Gallery & Museum until Saturday 19 November and some of the works on display are available to buy.
