Killerton House, Devon
The South West Region will be hosting the National Exhibition 2016. We are fortunate to be at Killerton House, a National Trust property in the heart of Devon. It has the largest collection of costumes in the National Trust with over 10,000 pieces dating from the 17th Century. The title of the exhibition reflects our collaboration showing quality pieces, old and new.
Killerton is centrally located within the region and is just 20 – 25 minutes away from the beautiful cathedral city of Exeter. There are many other National Trust properties in the region. Accessibility is good at Killerton with a buggy to take people from the reception area to the house. The gardens are lovely and there is a restaurant and plant centre.
We are working with Killerton to integrate our craft skills with their fashion theme. We will have displays of our craft skills using colour in the upstairs rooms alongside their costumes so that we can show the public what our craft entails and how these crafts have been alive for centuries.
