A word of warning. I went on Saturday last year, it was a nightmare! Parking is abysmal and the exhibition was full of students milling around waiting to take their pieces home. Avoid if you can and go on Thursday or Friday. I’m learning by my mistake.
Just found some interesting textiley exhibitions mentioned here. Check out the site.
Well, changed venues, but the name’s the same!
