The Sunbury Gallery and the Contemporary Art of Embroidery

Presenter Michiko Gardner - Gallery Administrator at the Sunbury Gallery.

We were joined by Michiko Gardner for a captivating talk on the journey of the Sunbury Gallery. We  learnt about the history behind its founding, and discovered the unique story of the building it calls home.  We got a sneak peek of what make it so special today, including its picturesque location. There are ambitious plans for the Gallery to become a Centre of Textile Art.
