Unfinished Treasures is the latest Friends mini-exhibition. It will be at The Quilters’ Guild, St Anthony’s Hall in York on 2-6 and 9-13April 2018. This new exhibition offers an opportunity to view some of the unfinished works in The Quilters’ Guild Collection.
This trip through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries showcases projects that were never quite completed, demonstrating a wide range of techniques in construction and design. The works exhibited will show the multi-layered construction and the re-use of materials, from Victorian conversation prints to twentieth-century crazy patchwork. Fascinating stories of families and communities who have inherited and continued quilts will be shown alongside personal projects, such as cushion covers and cot quilts based on 1930s magazine patterns.
This is the second of the four exhibitions we will be running this year, with support from the new Friends of the Collection scheme.
The exhibition is open to Existing Friends of the Collection and they do not need to book a ticket. If you would like to join the Friends of the Collection, an annual Friend membership costs £15 per annum (£10 for Quilters’ Guild Members) and gives you entry to all the exhibitions throughout the year, plus free entry for a friend for any two exhibitions in that year. To Join as a friend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wish to attend just this one exhibition, individual exhibition admission is £3 per exhibition, and must be booked in advance through the Eventbrite website. We are also offering FREE entry for students on display of a valid student ID.
Please note the exhibition is open on Easter Monday 2nd of April, but does not open on weekends. As the exhibition space is small, we are offering timed tickets to those wishing to buy one-off exhibition tickets, to ensure that all visitors get a good visitor experience. (Exisiting and new members of the Friends Scheme do not need to book a time slot).
