Capability Brown Embroidery

Andover EG is being joined by Winchester EG, Salisbury EG and Solent EG to create the exhibition of work, with inspiration coming from Capability Brown's genius and Hillier Gardens. It is an opportunity to see a display of unique and specially created work based around the typically English scene of landscapes and stately gardens.

Below are two examples of work created by Andover EG that will be on display at the exhibition.

From a Distance - Gill Foster
(Looking across the gardens at Hilliers, it was easy to see how the garden could blend into the surrounding countryside, an effect Capability Brown was particularly keen on.)


Spring Trees at Hillier's - Eleanor Jakeman
(Made with textured natural fabrics, layered then machine embroidered and finally painted.)
