Stitch and Weave Textile Exhibition

A collection of historic textiles, many of which have never been displayed to the public before can now be seen at Llanerchaeron in a new exhibition called 'Stitch and Weave' in the lower Pamela Ward room in the Villa.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Woven and embroidered textiles from the 17th-19th centuries are handpicked from the Pamela Ward Collection. The exhibition includes a fragment from a 300-year-old tapestry 'Diogenes discarding his cup', from a series called 'The Life of Diogenes'. The tapestry is thought to originate from London's famous Mortlake Tapestry Works during the Renaissance period.

Other highlights in the exhibition include a child’s 18th century silk bodice, and richly coloured Victorian crewel embroidery. Pamela Ward (1908–94) was an avid collector of antiques who liked to experiment with needlework and embroidery. Some of her personal items are also on display, including carefully preserved newspaper patterns from the 1940s.

'Stitch and Weave' is open until November.
