Women in Textiles exhibition to honour International Women’s Day 2022

We’re thrilled to announce our latest exhibition in the Kitchen Gallery at Cockington Court. Between 9th March and 26th March 2022, we will be celebrating women working with textiles in honour of International Women’s Day 2022.

In partnership with local community artist Shelley Castle, who has selected work created by a variety of women ranging from those who have never stitched before, to highly skilled textile artisan makers including:

  • The Fish Hawker Aprons: Three aprons based on fish stock reports from fish landed in Brixham and the tough lives of women in the fish industry
  • The Fish Hawker banner carried in procession
  • The Peace Banner 2006 designed by Nicci Wannacut and exhibited at various sites every year on International Women’s Day
  • The Coat of Kindness: created by 100 women over the world and let by artist Amanda Haran. Started on International Women’s Day 2021 and completed on Mental Health Awareness day that year
  • The Extinction Rebellion Apron: Worn at various protests in London and COP26 in Glasgow.

This is a free of charge exhibition – all welcome. The gallery is open 10am-4pm daily.
