Compton Verney Textile Fair - November 7, 2015

11am - 5pm   www.comptonverney.org.uk

This year's Textile Fair flows from the spectacular Adam Hall into the Ground Floor Galleries offering an exciting mix of textiles: vintage clothing, millinery, printed textiles, embroidery, dyed yarns & threads etc. New for this year are specialist textile demonstrations set within the collections galleries of Naples, Northern European and British Portraits.

Sue Rangely will be presenting a 'Pop-up Studio' at this year's event, showing displays of work and giving demonstrations; Alison Smith, MBE, will be showing her dressmaking, tailoring and corsetry skills; Rapture & Wright, whose beautiful textiles were admired at The Arts & Crafts House exhibition, reveal their specialist hand printing processes.

The British Portraits gallery is an inspiring setting, below the bejewelled regal paintings discover Sue stitching a sparkling metallic machine lace - fashions of the past catch the eye of a contemporary embroiderer to influence creativity.
