A group of local contemporary Textile Artists are holding their second exhibition of ‘Textiles in the Park’, entitled Flora.

The exhibition will be held at the Rangers’ Meeting Room at Marbury Park on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March 2019, between 10am and 4pm each day. Flora will showcase the Textile Art that has been influenced and inspired by flowers, fruit and trees and the subject matter that is all around them when the group meet weekly at Marbury.

Textiles in the Park was established in February 2017 to meet the need for a creative group that would bring together like-minded artists. The regular weekly meetings provide support, inspiration and motivation for the thirteen current members who come from a variety of backgrounds but who all have a common love of textiles.

The group hold their meetings in the Rangers’ Meeting room at Marbury Park, which is part of Northwich Woodlands and The Mersey Forest. The artists have been influenced and inspired by the nature all around them, leading to the choice of Flora as the exhibition title. Ten per cent of monies from any sales of work will be donated to the friends of Anderton and Marbury (FoAM) to contribute towards funding  events for the local community.

The exhibition, which is free to enter, will have on display over forty pieces of 2-D and 3-D Textile Art and will include eco-printing, mixed media, free machine embroidery, needle felting, hand embroidery, wet felting, wirework, weaving and beading.
