Thursday 30th March 2017

To  open our new exhibition, in conjunction with The Quilters’ Guild, we will be hosting an afternoon lecture on the history of Patchwork and Quilting given by Heather Audin, The Guild’s Curator.

On the opening day of our new exhibition, Patchwork, Pattern & Print we will welcome Heather Audin, Curator of The Quilters’ Guild Collection, for an afternoon lecture. This illustrated talk will explore the history of patchwork and quilting from the 18th to the 20th century, looking at examples from The Guild’s collection. Heather will expand on the content of the exhibition and look at overall changes in style and production throughout the centuries, as well as exploring individual quilts, their makers and their stories.

About Heather –  Heather Audin has been the curator of The Quilters’ Guild Collection since 2008, and has curated over 50 exhibitions with the collection. Prior to this she worked at Hull Museums documenting the social history and costume collection. Controversially – she is not a quilter! – but is a very active sewer, creating clothing and costumes in her spare time.
