They said, ‘Come back.’ So after a couple of years away, we’re bringing World Textile Day back to Wickaham. Brilliant!

The highlight of World Textile Day South will be an exhibition and presentation by award-winning textile artist Janice Gunner. Follow Janice’s creative journey as she finds inspiration in world textiles – from Nigerian adire cloth to Japanese shibori.
