Aotearoa Quilters Taranaki
And Aotearoa Quilters’ travelling Suitcase Exhibition.
27 June – 19 July
Aotearoa Quilters Taranaki are hosting an exhibition of work from more than 20 local members of the national association. Joining the exhibition are 20 selected ‘suitcase’ quilts from the National Quilting Symposium held in Auckland in October last year. The Suitcase Exhibition comprises small art quilts, approximately 50cm square. Most regions from throughout the country are represented.
Taranaki members have been working on two challenges for the exhibition; a Clarice Cliff challenge and another titled, ‘Structures’.
There will also be a handful of larger bed-size quilts on display.
The exhibition will demonstrate a wide variety of techniques and skills, both traditional and modern, in their art quilts.
