Juried Exhibition 2024

Under The Surface in the Lower Gallery

Each year, as part of Norfolk Makers Festival, we are delighted to curate and present a unique exhibition of original textile work, created by local artists, responding to a specific theme.

In 2020 the inaugural show was themed Picking Up The Threads. In 2022 the theme was Adjustment, and in March 2023 artists responded to the theme Bold Perspectives. 

For 2024 the theme is Under The Surface. The exhibition will be in the Lower Gallery at The Forum, which you can access via the ground floor Gallery. It will be open from 10am - 4pm each day of the Festival.

The opportunity to submit work for this exhibition was open to both amateurs and professionals living in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

Entries were welcome from across all types of textile work including weaving, spinning, knitting, crochet, quilting, embroidery, lacemaking, patchwork and so on. 

Judging is carried out by two distinguished textile artists, Annette Morgan and Sara Impey.
