Stitching a Story: Past and Future

Featured Image


Textile artist Wilma Kirkpatrick’s award-winning work has been exhibited across UK, Europe and America. The retired University of Ulster teacher of embroidery of over 40 years, presents a selection of quilts and samplers. 

The quilts each tell a story using a range of embroidery techniques, using domestic and industrial machines, with hand stitching to construct them. Each quilt takes up to a year to create. The stories portrayed through the work range from emigration to events in the artist’s life.

The exhibition will be open at Mid-Antrim Museum at the Braid from Mon – Sat 22nd June – Sat 28th Sept 2024. Admission is free.
