A textile exhibition inspired by WWI.

Using stirring family memories, letters, objects, writings, images and music from the period, this exhibition of contemporary textiles has been created by members of the 1914-18 Commemorative Quilts and Textiles Group.

Along with themes of anger, loss and lives turned inside out, the exhibition also explores the sense of friendship, duty and union that came from within the horrors of war.
