Marianne Young's Collection of Work, 27th July 2018

Marianne talked us through her large collection of textile art, some of which she had created herself (see the underwater scene above) but most of which she had discovered from various locations and purchased to add to her collection. It was great to see her appreciation of such a range of delicate work and her enthusiasm rubbed off onto us too; she encouraged us to handle some of the pieces and pointed out the sort of embroidery involved. It was a delightful evening spent in congenial company.
