Melville all abuzz over Embroiderers’ Guild milestone

The City of Melville’s Wireless Hill Museum will come to life with colour as it showcases a collection of exquisite artworks designed and constructed by members of the Embroiderers’ Guild of WA as they celebrate 55 years of creativity and tradition.

Samplers and Stories: A Contemporary Showcase will open at 3pm on Saturday, June 1st at the museum and be on display until Sunday, July 21st.

City of Melville Mayor, Katy Mair said the City was proud to partner with the Embroiderers’ Guild of WA to present the showcase.

“It’s a milestone year for the Embroiderers’ Guild of WA as they mark 55 years of creativity and tradition, and this exhibition is the perfect opportunity to celebrate their history,” said Mayor Mair.

“I encourage the community to head along to Wireless Hill Museum to visit these amazing works and also get involved in the public program where they can get involved in embroidery.”

For the duration of the exhibition, the Guild in partnership with the City Council will also deliver a full program of workshops, including opportunities for participants to stitch their own masterpiece.

The Embroiderers’ Guild of WA and the City invite you to delve into a world where needle and thread weave tales of artistry and heritage.

The exhibition promises to turn the notion of the traditional embroidery sampler on its head, instead of embroidered alphabets and prayers, expect to see installations that illustrate the values, issues and tastes of 21st century Australians.
