Sat 25 Nov – Sun 17 Mar
An exciting and thought-provoking exhibition by a group of talented local artists is soaring into Preston Park Museum.
Tapestry and weaving exhibition, Flight: weaving a home for butterflies and moths, is inspired by the museum’s Walled Garden and created by artists from The Weaving Room in Darlington. It celebrates the beauty of butterflies and moths, sustainability and the environment, and explores an important message about the decline of the butterfly population and loss of habitat.
Wing your way to the museum to find out more about this unique exhibition which has brought together talented weavers from across the north with a shared passion for the natural environment.
The exhibition will take place from Saturday 25 November 2023 until Sunday 17 March 2024 in the Temp Gallery on the first floor of the museum.
No booking required, see our opening times.
