British Textile Biennial

The first British Textile Biennial throws a spotlight on the nation’s creativity, innovation and expression in textiles against the backdrop of the impressive infrastructure of the cotton industry in Pennine Lancashire.

Throughout October 2019 we look at fabric as a means of expression; exploring textiles as a vehicle for protest and cultural identity in installations, performances and art works that take a dynamic look at our relationship with that most basic and ancient of human creations, cloth.

The Mr X Stitch Guide to Cross Stitch will be exhibiting at Towneley Hall, Historic House, Art Gallery & Museum, Burnley, throughout the British Textile Biennial (3rd Oct-3rd Nov 2019), and entry is free.
