Exhibition of textile artwork

Logo for Brighton Fashion and Textile School, with the name Sara Cook in white lettering on coloured circles.This exhibition is a display of vibrant and imaginative textile artworks, brought to you by the students of the Brighton Fashion and Textile School, where their City & Guilds accredited course is led and inspired by the founder of the school, Sara Cook.

This will be the third time that we have had the pleasure of hosting the textile school. I personally look forward each year to the dazzling display of intricate thread-work they bring to the Town House.

The exhibition was planned for July 2020, but the closing of the Town House due to the Coronavirus outbreak has caused the exhibition to be rescheduled to September 2021. The plan now is for it to run for three days from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th September, inclusive.

The exhibition will be across two floors of the Town House and admission will be free. Please make a note of the dates and do try to get along to see the work of The Class of 2020/1. In the meantime, please enjoy this virtual show of textile artwork from previous exhibitions.
