20 May 2018: Textiles, Tea and Tales

Elegant fantasy with a hint of wild – a Sunday afternoon with a difference!

Discover the extraordinary atelier of award winning designer Jan Knibbs; enjoy a delicious little feast including a glass of fizz; and thrill to Chloë’s story cabaret – Nightshade’s Tales sparkle with dangerous romance and dark humour. Expect a carpet of dreams, a fairy brocade and spine tingling magic in the warp and weft of every story. (Story cabaret designed to entertain adults!)

* Jan’s shop is an Aladdin’s Cave of wearable art. Starting with gorgeous vintage garments, or new, Jan embroiders and beads and re-styles into fantastical apparel fit for a fairytale. Luscious colours and textures also make her jewellery quite enchanting

. Today after tea you have the chance to dress up in exquisite finery for a pop-up photo shoot (optional – prints/jpeg images by arrangement with our lovely photographer).
