‘Whatever floats your boat …’
An exhibition of new contemporary textiles that explores the town and environment of Slough, and the collections of Slough Museum. Each participant in the project is expected to create artworks that will share their own experiences, culture and understanding of what they see in Slough and in the collections of the Museum, and in turn share the process of creating this work with the other participants in the group.
Upcoming exhibition dates:
19 September 2012 - 26 October 2012
National Needlework Archive, The Old Chapel Textile Centre
New Greenham Common, Newbury
