Last October, the NFWI Craft Committee, in collaboration with The Salisbury Museum, held a series of workshops in which WI members worked with a textile artist to knit or stitch spoons inspired by those in the museum’s collection.
Once created, all these beautiful and individual pieces were sent to ceramic artist Julie Miles to be transformed by being dipped in porcelain and fired. The result is a testament to the imagination, skill and creativity of WI members.
The porcelain spoons will now be exhibited at Salisbury Museum from 8 April to 3 September 2017 and will run alongside their major summer exhibition ‘British Art: Ancient Landscapes’.
The museum has agreed that all WI members attending the exhibition will be entitled to a half price day ticket (£3.75), this will include entry to the whole museum and all current exhibitions; tickets must be purchased on the day and members will be asked to show proof of their membership to receive the discounted ticket.
