We are currently undertaking a community quilt project in relation to Antje Rook’s “A virus a day” quilt which was on display in the community centre and to celebrate one year’s opening of Dorset museum.
The idea is for staff, volunteers, community groups and members of the public to create a square 10 cm x 10cm with a slightly larger edge for sewing purposes.
Quilt pieces are be in natural colours using any textile, embroidery or quilting techniques based on some aspect of the museum/ history of Dorchester – the collection or building for example.
For further information please email Alexandra Briggs at Dorset Museum [email protected].
Completed squares can be brought to the museum and we will be collecting these over the next few months.
Friday 22 September 2023, The Victorian Hall will also be closed all day for a private function. The Fine Foundation Dorset Story Space, next the the Thomas Hardy's Dorset Gallery will also be closed for an hour around Midday.
