You've Got Dragons

Things you won't want to miss!

Moving On is the exhibition from October 15-27 at Worthing’s Colonnade House – Creative Hub.

The exhibition comes from contemporary quilt and textile art group Curious Threads.

Spokeswoman and member Sue Duncan said: “This second exhibition by the group builds on the success of the initial exhibition New Beginnings and demonstrates how the individual members have grown and developed their work

“Now a cohesive group of friends, they seek to support, inspire and motivate one another to achieve their best work while developing skills and techniques often outside of their comfort zone.

“This exhibition will include each artist’s interpretation of the various group challenges. It will demonstrate how they have been inspired by the themes and how their work has developed using a mixture of multi-media, paper, contemporary quilting or stitched and embroidered pieces.”

Until October 27.
