Joy Smith & Barbara Dawson
Saturday 3 July to Sunday 1 August 2021 

In July, we have two separate and very different artists exhibiting: 
Joy Smith with her solo exhibition Still Life in The Old Girl Yet and Barbara Dawson’s ReCover. Joy’s work is bright and features still life depictions of everyday objects.

Barbara Dawson's work is more muted and moody, with her exhibition exploring the recovery after the Australian bush fires. Barbara will also be running a workshop during her exhibition where participants will go on a neighbourhood walk ‘mapping’ place and translating this experience onto cloth.
Barbara has been teaching art and drawing to students and adults for over thirty years and her workshop is sure to be a unique and valuable experience. 

Both exhibitions are undoubtedly inspirational for embroiderers of every persuasion.

 Embroiderers' Guild NSW
Discover Embroidery - HSC students work
August 2021 

In August we are hosting an exhibition of HSC major works, with the view to inviting large numbers of high school students and textile/design teachers into the Guild and Gallery. To this end, we will also be having two ‘open days’ - one geared specifically at students and one at teachers. We would love for members to get the word out if they know any students in years 9 and up doing D&T/Textiles or have any contacts with teachers and/or high schools. This is a great opportunity to put our best foot forward and establish our relevance with the younger generation.
