Exhibition: Quilts 1700-1945

In collaboration with London’s Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), 'Quilts 1700-1945' explores more than 200 years of British patchwork and quilt-making. The exhibition resonates with historical and cultural references that challenge the assumption that stitching is simply ‘women's work’ – every quilt has a hidden history: an unspoken story which is concealed within its layers.
