A journey through the life’s work of textile artist, Melanie Missin – from where she started, to her practice today. This autobiographical exhibition will chart Melanie’s quest to keep textile traditions alive, including works by her mother that were her first inspiration, key pieces she has created throughout her career and projects she is currently developing.

Melanie Missin has been sewing and crafting for over 40 years. Over the past 10 years she has been making patchwork quilts and has now moved into textile art. Melanie runs regular classes and workshops from her studio in Littleport, Cambridgeshire and also gives talks and workshops to local and national groups.
