Time During opening hours
Age range
Admission Free

Over the past year Dean Castle Textile Team and a member of East Ayrshire Leisure's curatorial staff have worked closely with two lecturers from Middlesex University - Kathleen Mullaniff and Emma Dick. Alongside Pauline Mullaniff, textile artist, they have collaborated to create an exhibition of work that team members made at important or special periods in life – stitched in memory.

Textile and Memory includes items and artworks in a variety of techniques, including minute crochet, art pieces, embroidery, weaving, dressmaking and gold work. Previous projects and images from the thirteen-year history of the team will feature, as well as a fabulous new baby robe made by Pauline (influenced by ‘foundling’ babies and Ayrshire Needlework), and artworks and a catalogue produced by Kathleen and Emma. Set in the surroundings of the Dick Institute’s Loom Room and displays of the area’s textile heritage, this exhibition is a must for anyone with an interest in the subject.
