Arnolfini - est 1961

Organised with our friends at Bristol Sight Loss Council and Sight Support, West of England, Arnolfini are planning another two audio described tours for our Visually Impaired patrons to introduce Threads ‘breathing stories into materials. A major exhibition featuring 21 contemporary international artists and makers, who use textiles as their chosen medium, exploring how stories and memory are embedded in the materials and processes. There will be works ranging from intricate embroidered canvases, large-scale golden weavings, delicate mended paper bags, textured tufts, knitted bags, and installations.

There will be sighted guides available and complimentary tea and coffee will be served in the café bar so people can have a chat about the work afterwards.

These tours will be held before the galleries open so that our Visitors Services team are able to lead Audio Descriptive tours without visitors being disturbed by the public. There will also be opportunities to touch samples of the work.

Free event. But please email to book a space.

Tour 1: Saturday 26 August 10am to 11am

Tour 2: Saturday 23 September 10am to 11am
