These beautiful storytelling textiles were made by Julie Long during a Level 2 City & Guilds course in Hand and Textile Embroidery. Mythstories was lucky enough to benefit by taking them on long term loan.
They are all designed as props to help tell the stories they depict. Now on display, some are accompanied by handwritten copies of their tales, but it's true to say that the textiles don't really need any text, the pictures tell their own stories.
Also on display is the workbook of “The Green Knight” cushion which serves as a window to examine the process of its making, but to enjoy turning its pages you will have to visit the museum.
