Bringing fabric to Christmas at Kingston Lacy

Using digitally printed fabric inspired by Anne Bankes’ creation of stained glass windows, Sarah has designed a freestanding textile installation for the decadent Spanish Room at Kingston Lacy along with luxurious soft furnishings. Creative lighting will add to the effect of stained glass and help to bring the spirit of Anne to life this year.

" Working on Christmas at Kingston Lacy has been very exciting! It's been a great privilege to meet my fellow artists and get to know their work. I can't wait to see all the festive decorations and gorgeous lighting in situ."
