History in handkerchiefs!
Hedon Museum was so impressed by Kate Dennett’s informative and beautiful exhibition, back in 2016, that they just had to have her back!
Kate Dennett’s collection of historical handkerchiefs began in the West Indies during the 1970s, where an elegant lace handkerchief laying on the pavement of a town square caught her eye. Encouraged by her degree in Graphic Design and interest in textiles, she continued from there to collect a mass of enchanting examples dating from the Victorian era to the present day, from handmade to machine-made, from lace to colour.
This is an exhibition for lovers of elegance, for those with an interest in the changing of styles through the progression of time, and anyone interested in design, textile or otherwise.
Exhibition runs up to and including Saturday, 23 June 2018. Opening times are every Wednesday and Saturday 10am – 4pm.
FREE ADMISSION. Tea, coffee and biscuits are available. Souvenirs and books for sale.
